CARPENTER ANT INFORMATION.go back home ->
Carpenter ants can damage the wood structure of your home or business. They burrow into decayed moist wood to make their nest. The key to successful Carpenter Ant control is to locate their nest. We will perform a thorough examination of your home and its perimeter. Once a nest is located, the pest control agent may drill holes, and treat the surrounding wood, moving outward from the nest’s location, eventually finishing the job with a residual insecticide spray to the perimeter of your home. With the number of Carpenter Ant infestations and the difficulty of getting rid of them, it is common to call in a professional to take care of this wood boring pest.
Getting rid of carpenter ants on your property requires that we complete an inspection outside, treat the outside of your home with a residual barrier insecticide, and clear brush away from the home. We will kill any mature nest found. Note that structural improvements like replacing aging and rotted siding and wood porches may be necessary to prevent establishment of indoor Carpenter Ant colonies.
