Carpenter Ants – An Austin Home Pest Issue

Carpenter Ants – An Austin Home Pest Issue

Carpenter ants are big – upwards of ½ inch for some species – and are hunters. The primary diet of carpenter ants is protein and most often their victim is an insect. They are known to kill small reptiles and mammals too. In terms of living with humans, the big problem with carpenter ants is that they chew up your home trying to make a nest.

Carpenter Ants As Pests

Carpenter ants live in wooden galleries that they excavate by chewing tunnels and caverns in the wood. They are a home pest because do similar damage to homes as do termites. The difference is that carpenter ants do not eat wood, they are meat ants. However, when they tunnel into foundation supports or wall beams, they weaken the home’s structure.

Another aspect of carpenter ants, is that they will drive off your pet so that they can consume its food.

Controlling Carpenter Ants

The trick to dealing with all ants is to address the ant at the colony and not just kill off the foragers. Ants are a social insect and must be controlled at that level. When you remove the colony, there are no more pest ants. There are a few ways to go about that, and we develop treatment protocols based on whether we can locate the colony. If it is under your house and in the foundation, we treat the problem at its source. We use specialized contact pesticides and bait programs to ensure that ant colonies, especially carpenter ant colonies, are destroyed at the source.

If your home or business is plagued by ants – any type of ant – reach out to our team. We provide comprehensive ant control that removes the ant colony, not just the foragers. We provide complete pest control services throughout the Greater Austin area. Our rates are affordable and we offer special on-going pest services for property and business owners.
