Carpenter Ant

The busy life of Carpenter Ants

Here a Carpenter Ant is carrying an egg. Carpenter ants work 24/7/365 to build and expand their territory. They are nocturnal so you'll see most of their foraging at night. Carpenter ants can have a single nest or a colony with multiple "satellite nests". These satellite nests are also known as feeder nests since they don't have eggs, but they do have workers, mature larvae and pupae. Depending on the species and age of the colony, their population can range from 3,000 ants to over 100,000 ants! Carpenter ants get their name from their behavior to chew out galleries in wood for building their nest. They do not eat the wood, they only hollow it out for a home. The treatment protocol for carpenter ants can vary greatly depending on the activity that is seen. We have an assortment of products and methods for control carpenter ants. A thorough onsite inspection will determine the direction of treatment required.
