Carpenter Ant (Camponotus)
Carpenter Ants are among the largest of the ants, from 1/4- to 3/8 of an inch long. The most common species is black, but some have reddish or yellowish coloration. Carpenter Ants swarm from spring to fall. They forage in yards, porches, patios and occasionally inside homes. Because of their swarming, they are often mistaken for termites. They prefer to establish nests in areas where wood has been exposed to severe moisture. Unlike termites, Carpenter Ants do not eat the wood in which they nest. They merely dig into the wood to excavate their nests.
Carpenter Ants clean out their nesting sites and galleries by removing all excess wood. Discarded material that resembles sawdust called “Frass” can often be identified and help to determine where the colony is located.
Unlike Termites, Carpenter Ants usually do not cause serious structural damage to houses and buildings. However, if left untreated, these ants can cause extreme damage over time.
Which ants are likely to be found in your home or business?
Although there are thousands of different ant species, there are relatively few that we commonly see as pests. The two most common species of ants found in homes and businesses include:
Carpenter Ants (Camponotus)
Pavement Ants (Tetramorium Caespitum)
Pharaoh Ants (Monomorium pharaonis)
Our ant exterminator technicians treat both the exterior and interior of the structure using the latest technology and Integrated Pest Management (IPM) methods to eliminate your ant invasion.
The exterior of the building is treated in order to prevent additional ants from entering the premises, and the interior of the building is treated in order to eliminate the ants that have already found their way in.
Our Ant Exterminator uses a combination of Ant Traps, Granular Bait, Ant Killer, Liquid Bait and Residual Insecticide to treat.
Worker ants tend to bring the bait back to their colonies, where it is shared amongst the other ants. Therefore, the bait is evenly distributed throughout the colony, effectively eliminating it completely. This solution is very effective for getting rid of black ants in your kitchen. Liquid Residual Insecticide is applied into the cracks and crevices to ensure that the ants cannot move throughout the structure.
Dependable Exterminating technicians understand the habits of each ant species and use that knowledge when developing an ant control treatment plan best suited to your home or office. Our technicians are state certified, licensed applicators and are required to participate in regular training programs in order to keep them up to date on the most current pest control advancements.
Our service technicians are trained in locating the problem areas in which ants are entering the premises and treat it accordingly. The best way to control an ant infestation is by finding and destroying their nests. Our trained ants exterminator will point out improvements that can be made to prevent further ant infestation, such as sealing cracks and crevices.
