Don’t take any chances when carpenter ants are involved. These pests can cause serious structural damage to houses and other buildings. Over time, the safety hazards they create can be severe. Sherwood Park carpenter ant control and removal is throrough and efficient. Those ants won’t know what is coming for them.
Contrary to popular belief, carpenter ants do not eat wood, unlike termites. Instead, they merely chew it up and spit out a material called frass, which looks similar to sawdust and can mark the entrances to their tunnels, or ‘galleries.’ Their galleries are also hollow tunnels, where termites will pack the ends of their tunneling with mud. However, both of them are destructive species when it comes to human dwellings. In the wild, they assist with the decomposition of rotting wood, and help the environment overall. In our houses and other buildings, they make our living inside them unstable, and even dangerous.
Weakened walls are only part of the problem, however. Simply having an infestation inside the home or other building is the other side of it. Carpenter ants are one of the ant species that makes satellite nests in additon to their main nest, or ‘parent’ nest. However, when it comes to carpenter ants, they can have a different queen in every single nest, to better ensure the survival of the colony should one or two nests be squashed.
