Sharing your home with carpenter ants: no thanks!

March 1st, 2024

You're watching your favorite TV show when all of a sudden, you see a slight movement near the base of the wall. You get up to look and are surprised to see'an ant!

What could an ant be doing in the house at this time of year? Where could it have come from?

The presence of ants inside the house when there is still snow on the ground is often the confirmation that there is a nest somewhere in the structure of the building. These are usually carpenter ants, as they can dig through all kinds of materials to make tunnels and chambers to use as a nest. When winter temperatures are mild, it is not uncommon to see ants present in a building's structure wake up and start moving around.

To get rid of an infestation, the nest must be completely destroyed. Because ants can set up house anywhere in the building, locating the nest is not always easy. In most cases, a special intervention program designed to eliminate carpenter ants is necessary. In order to minimize the use of insecticides, our program takes the insects' biology and behavior into consideration as we solve the problem.

Don't wait to act. A four-year-old colony can easily contain over 3,000 ants!
