Carpenter Ants

Carpenter Ant

Carpenter ants range in size from 1/4 to 3/4″. Black in color, some have gray bands on the back or a reddish coloration on the middle.

Tools of the Trade

Workers have large mandibles that allow them to quickly excavate any type of wood to make a nest.

Interior Damage

Carpenter ants will render a load-bearing beam on the interior of your home as structurally-inefficeint.

Exterior Damage

Carpenter ants will reduce the heartwood of a beautiful tree into a “dead-fall” danger for your house.

Carpenter Ant Colony

As the size of the colony grows, so does their destructive behavior.
