Carpenter Ants in North Carolina

 

Carpenter ants, a common menace in North Carolina, pose a significant threat to the integrity of your home. Their preference for wood exposed to moisture, like those near leaky pipes or damaged roofs, can create new structural issues and make existing damage considerably worse. Be prepared to eliminate the carpenter ants in your home by equipping yourself with the knowledge to identify them, understand their risks, and the expert help from your local Clegg’s Pest Control expert.

Identifying Brown Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants, often underestimated, can wreak havoc on homes if an infestation is left unchecked. Recognizable by their reddish-brown-to-black color and oval-shaped bodies, these ants range from 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length. Despite their size, their powerful jaws allow them to chew through wood, causing structural damage to your home and furniture. Like other ants, keep an eye out for scouts and lines of workers leading back to their colony, which will likely produce a distinct sound resembling the crinkling of cellophane when active.

Signs of a Carpenter Ant Infestation

Carpenter ants, wood-boring insects, carve galleries within wooden structures. Early signs of a carpenter ant infestation include the presence of large, winged ants (swarmers), piles of sawdust-like material, and hollow-sounding areas in wood. Keep an eye out for multiple nests, as these ants establish parent colonies in constant moisture, with satellite colonies involved in infestations. Infestations can occur in various areas, including wood, wall voids, hollow voids, and under insulation, so count on the expert eye of a Clegg’s pest elimination specialist to track them down.

Carpenter Ant Prevention and Treatment

Maintaining a clean environment, sealing food, and addressing moisture issues is your first line of defense against carpenter ants. While you can also implement store-bought poison traps and DIY methods, regular professional inspections help catch potential issues before the damage occurs.
