Carpenter Ants The Unwanted Guests of Spring

Just like that Spring has arrived not only bringing with it gorgeous flowers, beautiful sunshine, and warmth but those pesky little critters like carpenter ants.

Carpenter ants are large ants indigenous to many forested parts of the world. They build nests inside wood consisting of galleries chewed out with their mandibles, preferably in dead, damp wood. However, unlike termites, they do not consume wood, discarding a material that resembles sawdust.

Right after Carpenter Ant Season is Termite swarm season. We will dive deep into termites in April as that’s when termites become more dominant.
