About Carpenter Ants

Red and/or black in color, carpenter ants get their name from the fact that they are drawn to wood. Unlike termites, however, carpenter ants do not eat wood. Instead, they bore through it, forming smooth tunnels in order to build their nests. When they reach maturity, carpenter ant colonies can consist of 10,000 to 20,000 workers. In larger colonies, that number may jump to over 50,000.

When it comes to homes and businesses, carpenter ants have been known to wreak havoc on structures. They enter buildings through rotted wood, and once inside, they continue to gnaw through more wood, compromising your property’s structural integrity over time. Although rare, carpenter ants may also bite in defense, causing a good deal of pain.

Signs of an Infestation

If you notice worker ants and/or winged ants, also called swarmers, it’s a good indication that there’s a colony of carpenter ants located nearby. Another possible sign of a carpenter ant infestation is the presence of small openings in wood materials, like siding. As they excavate, carpenter ants will also drive out debris that looks like sawdust shavings. Finally, it’s important to keep in mind that carpenter ants prefer moist, decaying wood, so if your home or business has a moisture problem, you should check these areas for signs of an infestation.

Once again, you may have a carpenter infestation in New Jersey if:
  • You notice winged ants around your property
  • You find small holes in the wood around your house/business
  • You find sawdust shavings on the floor
  • Your property has recently experienced water damage and/or you’re dealing with rotted and decaying wood

Preventative Measures

There are a number of steps you can take to prevent a carpenter ant infestation. First and foremost, you should fix moisture problems as they arise, since as we’ve established, carpenter ants prefer wet, decaying wood to dry surfaces. You’ll also want to seal off any cracks or openings around your foundation to eliminate potential entry points. In addition, make sure to stack firewood away from your structure and cut back any tree branches that currently touch your exterior walls or roof.
