Pest Ants

Habits

All species of carpenter ants mainly attack wood that is or has been wet and damaged by mold. Even though these black carpenter ants first invade wet, decayed wood, they may soon begin building paths through dry, undamaged wood. They usually come into buildings through cracks around doors, windows, or through holes for wires. They will also crawl along overhead wires, shrubs, or tree limbs that touch the building far above the ground.

Threats

Carpenter ants damage wood through their nest building. If they gain entry to a structure, they pose a property threat. If you notice black carpenter ants, contact a professional immediately to discuss a proper course of ant control.

Ant Invasion

There are many types of ants in the world but the most common types of ants that give homeowners problems are Carpenter Ants, Odorous House Ants and Pavement Ants. They are tricky to spot at first since they are so small. If they are not treated correctly, ants can become a real infestation problem and can cause damage inside the home. Since they are so small, they can get inside houses easily through cracks and small spaces. Most of the time they get in the cracks in foundations of houses, which are underground, so homeowners have no clue of their entrance points.

Like most house pest occurrences, ants go for food sources and moist areas of a home. This leaves kitchens, living rooms and basements as prime targets for ants to infest.
