Big Black Ants? Call Abalon for a Free Estimate.
Carpenter Ants cause millions of dollars of damage annually to homes and buildings. They do not eat wood as termites do, but rather chip out wood in order to make a nest inside of walls, beams, sills and joists in a house.
Carpenter Ants, commonly referred to as 'big black ants,' can reach 1 inch in length. Some may even have wings and vary slightly in color (red/yellow).
Call To Get Rid Of Carpenter Ants Today
When you call for carpenter ant extermination, you can expect it to be done safely and effectively. We'll start by providing you with an inspection to correctly identify your pest problem.
We will find the trail the carpenter ants are using to forage for food and we will use that information to create a baiting treatment that will permanently eliminate the infestation. It works because each nest with a queen will send out foraging ants and these ants will bring the treatment back to the nests. This eliminates all queens, thus all nests.
We are so confident in this treatment that we offer a lengthy guarantee.
Signs Of Carpenter Ants
Sometimes you will see sawdust near places it should not be. They chip out wood to make colonies to nest inside of. Any indoor nests are typically satellite colonies to a larger nest outside the home. Carpenter ants need to have access to moisture in order to survive, so you may find them indoors where food and drink are accessible.
Are Carpenter Ants harmful?
These ants are generally harmless to humans but are known to damage structures. By hollowing out the wood to nest inside, they are weakening the structure. If left untreated, they are detrimental to the health of the home.
