wood destroying carpenter ant in san antonio

Stop carpenter ant damage with help from Family

Carpenter ants are a real hazard for people living in the great state of Texas.  As the human population of San Antonio blooms, so does its number of carpenter ants.  Known for rapidly moving in, creating nests inside wood and hollow sections of foundations, and being shockingly resilient, there are over a thousand different species of carpenter ants! 

The most common around here are red and black carpenter ants but, with numbers and resiliency as mentioned above, it’s a wonder that more people don’t call for our experts from Family Pest Control more often! If you’ve discovered large ants in your home, our San Antonio pest control company is ready to help get rid of carpenter ants.

Proper identification is a must when it comes to carpenter ants and termites.  The method for eliminating carpenter ants is different than termite control solutions.
