Workers leave the colony in late afternoon or early
evening, forage during the night and return to the
colony in the early morning hours. Carpenter Ants
carry food back to the nest intact or ingested and
later feed it to non-foraging members in the colony.

Homeowners become concerned when they see
Carpenter Ants inside. But, seeing Carpenter Ants
inside the home does not necessarily mean the
house is actually infested. It could mean the house is
simply within foraging distance of a colony which
could be several hundred feet from the structure.

Certain parts of a house, around and under windows,
roof eaves, decorative railroad ties, decks and
porches are more likely to be infested by Carpenter
Ants because of moisture damage in these areas.
However, Carpenter Ants don't always need a moist
area to nest. They may use an old abandoned nest or
wood "hollowed out" by termites. Nests also may be
located in hollow doors, small void areas produced
during construction or even in foam insulation.


Carpenter Ant Colony Elimination
Since the visible Carpenter Ants that you are seeing
in your home are only scouts looking for food,
applying a baseboard spray to foraging workers with
residual insecticides is of limited value because,
even though some workers will die, the colony will
largely be unaffected by the treatment. When the
product dissipates within a few weeks, which they are
designed to do, you will simply have to re-apply
insecticides and start the process all over again while
damage is still being done to your home.

Because Carpenter Ants live in Colonies, a treatment
which targets the Colony is the only way to guarantee
elimination of Carpenter Ants. What we do at
Assassin Exterminating is not control the Carpenter
Ant infestation, but completely eliminate it. All
Carpenter Ant Treatments come with a minimum of 1
year guarantee with options for lifetime renewal at a
nominal fee.

Problem Carpenter Ant Applications:
  • Remember, the most effective Carpenter Ant
    treatments are those that target the Colony.
    Some companies may propose expensive
    treatments which use more insecticide than is
    needed to control the Carpenter Ant problem.
  • Instead of spending the time to find the Colony,
    some companies propose to inject dust into
    every exterior wall void. Not only is this
    expensive and disruptive to you, but if the
    Colony isn't located in the home this will do
    nothing to eliminate the Colony.
  • Monthly sprays shouldn't be needed for
    managing Carpenter Ants. Inspections should
    be performed quarterly after a proper treatment
    to ensure complete Carpenter Ant colony
    elimination has been achieved.  
  • Some companies propose injecting insecticides
    into the soil perimeter, similar to a termite
    treatment. This would be very expensive and is
    not recommended for Carpenter Ant
    infestations.

Carpenter Ants much like Termites work in a caste system and are important in the balance of
nature because they speed the deterioration of fallen timber. Unlike Termites, they don't actually
feed on decaying wood. Rather, they burrow between the grains of wood leaving behind frass and
build their colonies inside the hollowed out wood. Carpenter Ant galleries are smooth and very
different from termite infested wood, which has mud packed into the hollowed out area.

The diet of Carpenter Ants is quite varied and includes living and dead insects, honeydew from
aphids, sweets, meat and fats.  They achieve pest status when a colony invades and damages the
integrity of the wood within a home or structure.
