The Best Carpenter Ant Control in New Jersey

Carpenter Ant Control in New Jersey

Carpenter Ants are relatively large ants that bore into soft, damp wood and build nests inside hollow spaces. Although they are often mistaken for termites, carpenter ants do not actually consume the wood. Instead, they push piles of sawdust out through the entrance holes.

Carpenter ants have narrow waists, bent antennae, and wings that are not all the same size. In New Jersey carpenter ant infestations, we mostly see black carpenter ants, but they may also be red or a combination of red and black.

Signs of a Carpenter Ant Infestation 

Signs of a carpenter ant infestation may not always be immediately noticeable due to their nocturnal foraging habits, but there are key indicators to watch for:

  • Groups of ants inside the house often indicate a nest within the walls.
  • The presence of tiny entrance holes and sawdust on the floor are common signs of carpenter ant activity.
  • Effective treatment involves locating and eliminating their nests. 

If you suspect an infestation, don't hesitate to contact us at A-Academy Termite & Pest Control.

How Much Damage do They Cause? 

Because they build tunnels inside the wood in your home, carpenter ants can cause severe structural damage. Not only do you have to worry about a carpenter ant infestation causing damage to your home, but it can also cause damage to the trees in your yard. These ants can infest a tree, making it less sturdy and more likely to fall and cause damage to your home. 

How do Carpenter Ants Enter a Home?

In the outdoors, carpenter ants typically build their nests in decaying trees or piles of old wood. If your home has water damage, it will be easy for the ants to bore through the damaged wood and begin nesting inside your house. Carpenter ant infestations are commonly found near rotting or damaged wood in your house or shed. When they are trying to establish new colonies, the ants normally swarm during the spring and summer months. If you suspect carpenter ant activity, call A-Academy today!
