Carpenter Ant Control

If you’re seeing large, black ants in your home, there’s a good chance they are carpenter ants. Carpenter ants are among the most common types of ant in North America, and while they aren’t harmful to humans, they can cause some serious damage to your property.

Carpenter ants get their name from their habit of building nests in wood. If left untreated, these nests can weaken the structural integrity of your home or other buildings on your property. In addition to causing damage, carpenter ants can also be a nuisance because they tend to swarm during the summer months.

If you have a carpenter ant problem, it’s important to take action right away. Insight Pest Solutions Canada offers reliable and safe carpenter ant extermination treatment that will eradicate these pests from your home and keep them from doing any more damage to your property.


Carpenter Ant Information

What is the difference between carpenter ants and other ants?

Carpenter ants are different from other ants because they build their nests in wood. Other types of ants usually make their nests in the ground. Carpenter ants can also be distinguished from other ants by their size – they are among the largest ant species.

Carpenter Ant Infestation

A carpenter ant infestation is a common problem for homeowners.

Carpenter Ants measure at about 1/4 inch long on average, reddish-brown, are often mistaken for fire ants because of their similar color, but they are actually more closely related to the black ant. Carpenter ants can be deterred by caulking or sealing the cracks in your home's exterior.

The first sign of an infestation is typically spotting winged ants that carry eggs on their backs as you pass through your house yourself.

Carpenter Ant Prevention

There are a few things you can do to help prevent a carpenter ant infestation in your house:

  • Keep your property clean and free of clutter. Carpenter ants are attracted to messes and areas where water accumulates.
  • Inspect any wood on your property for signs of damage or nesting activity. Carpenter ants often build their nests in areas where the wood is damaged or moist.
  • Seal the cracks in your home's exterior that carpenter ants could use as entry points.
  • Carpenter ant infestations can also be minimized indoors with baiting stations that contain contact stations.
  • Use pest control products such as carpenter ant pesticide or carpenter ant insecticide to keep these pests from invading your home.
  • The best prevention, however, is consulting your local pest control professionals. It is the local companies with certifications and tools that will be able to rid your home of a carpenter ant infestation the safest and most effective way.
