Carpenter Ant Damage
Carpenter ants are common household pests that can cause much more damage than typical sugar ants. Preferring dark, moist areas, carpenter ants typically establish colonies in rotting piles of wood outside or damp floorboards in attics and basements. Unlike termites, carpenter ants do not eat wood. Instead, they burrow into wood to make their nests, which can be just as damaging. If you suspect a carpenter ant infestation, you may notice the following signs:
- Piles of wood shavings - As carpenter ants tunnel into wood, they push wood shavings and piles of what looks like sawdust outside of the entrance of their nests. These piles may also contain dead insects and other debris.
- Damaged wood - Wooden beams or structures that have been extensively tunneled by carpenter ants may not show any exterior damage, but their interiors will be hollowed out. If the wood structures of a home are extensively tunneled, this can lead to structural collapse.
- Swarms - Carpenter ants create satellite colonies by sending swarms of winged ants. If you see a lot of flying ants around your home, it is likely that they are carpenter ants.
