Carpenter ants cause millions of dollars of damage to homes and structures annually. They initially enter from both trees and soil colonies progressively multiplying and enlarging into satellite colonies inside the home. Initially found in kitchens, bathroom and decks they will work their way into wall voids, foundations and attics. Eggs are laid both in winter and summer with more visible activity in spring and summer.
Carpenter Ants can be greatly controlled with exterior treatment of the structure, therefore, minimizing interior treatments.
