Having something as small as ants destroy your home can be very frustrating. Carpenter ants prefer rotting wood but can also move something like softwood and even hardwood. These ants can slowly weaken parts of your home like wall supports which can be very dangerous. Below are 3 signs to look for to know when you have carpenter ants.
- Wings - While ants are in the mating process they lose their wings. Often a clear sign of a carpenter ant problem is finding these wings that have been shed.
- Sawdust - As carpenter ants are eating through different parts of your home, they will make tunnels and as they make these tunnels they leave behind sawdust or frass. If you notice sawdust piles or frass in your home or on the exterior of your home, contact us and we can help.
- Visible Damage - A clear sign that you are dealing with carpenter ants is visible damage to your home. Another sign that you are dealing with these pesky pests is that the tunnels carpenter ants make are much smoother than termite tunnels which look more gnarled and gritty.

How Can You Tell the Difference Between Carpenter Ants and Termites?
Many people struggle to determine whether they’re dealing with carpenter ants or termites. The main difference between the two is that termites eat wood and carpenter ants don’t. Look for holes where ants may bore into wood, leaving behind a pile of sawdust. 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.
What Does Carpenter Ant Damage Look Like?
The most telling sign is sawdust from ants creating tunnels in the wood. They can establish full colonies with intricate tunnels, leaving wooden foundations weak and unstable.
