Carpenter Ants

Carpenter Ants usually nest in wall voids, attics, and crawlspaces. Carpenter Ant problems arise because they destroy wood, causing structural damage and unsafe conditions.

Carpenter Ants are not seasonal. Carpenter Ants spend the cold winter months inside, chewing up wood to hollow out galleries, where they will lay eggs in the spring time.

Carpenter Ants are considered a Wood Destroying Organism by the Washington State Department of Agriculture, are our Technicians are specially trained, licensed, and certified to inspect and treat for Carpenter Ants. Your Technician will begin treatment by inspecting for evidence of activity, damage, environmental factors, and other pest problems.

There is some popular confusion about the difference between Carpenter Ants and Termites. Termites are actually quite rare in the Pacific Northwest, the most common termite in this region is the Subterranean Termite, which lives underground. The biggest difference is that termites actually eat wood, whereas Carpenter Ants chew the wood up but do not ingest it.

Carpenter Ant treatment will be completed on the same day as your inspection. Treatment usually takes 1-2 hours depending on the size of your home. You do not need to leave home during treatment.

Ants will probably become alarmed and activity may actually increase immediately after the initial treatment. However, activity will quickly recede as the ants take our control material back to their nest. It is not unusual to see a few ants while the treatment takes effect. By the 4th week, activity is expected to completely stop.
