There's a lot to Learn About Carpenter Ants: 

Carpenter Ants Habitat
The carpenter ant species reside both outdoors and indoors in moist, decaying, or hollow wood, most commonly in forest environments.

One of the biggest misconceptions about carpenter ants is that they only become a problem once they enter your home and invade your carpet.  This is an easy assumption to make, hence their name. However, this is not true. Carpenter ants come in from the outside, and stoping them before they get into your home is critical!  That is why you should keep up with a routine Pest Control Treatment Plan provided by Four Seasons.  These treatment plans prevent pest from invading your home! 

They cut "galleries" into the wood grain to provide passageways to allow movement between different sections of the nest. Certain parts of a house, such as around and under windows, roof eaves, decks, and porches, are more likely to be infested by carpenter ants because these areas are most vulnerable to moisture.

Carpenter ants have been known to construct extensive underground tunneling systems.

These tunneling systems often lead to an end at some food source – often aphid colonies, where the ants extract and feed on honeydew. These tunneling systems also often exist in trees. The colonies typically include a central "parent" colony surrounded and supplemented by smaller satellite colonies.


Food
Carpenter ants are considered both predators and scavengers. These ants are foragers that typically eat parts of other dead insects or substances derived from other insects. Common foods include insect parts, "honeydew" produced by aphids, or extra-floral nectar from plants. They are also known for eating other sugary liquids such as honey, syrup, or juices. Carpenter ants can increase the survivability of aphids when they tend them. They tend to many aphid species but can also express a preference for specific ones.

Relationship with Humans as Pests
Carpenter ants can damage wood used in the construction of buildings. They can leave behind a sawdust-like material called frass that provides clues to their nesting location. Carpenter ant galleries are smooth and very different from termite-damaged areas, which have mud packed into hollowed-out areas. Carpenter ants can be identified by the general presence of one upward protruding node, looking like a spike, at the "waist" attachment between the thorax and abdomen (petiole). Control involves the application of insecticides in various forms, including specks of dust and liquids. The specks of dust are injected directly into galleries and voids where the carpenter ants are living. The liquids are applied in areas where foraging ants are likely to pick the material up and spread the poison to the colony upon returning.

 

IDENTIFYING CARPENTER ANTS:

You May Have a Carpenter Ant Infestation If You:

Find piles of wood shavings or sawdust beneath wooden areas like baseboards, door jambs, and window sills, for example.

 

Carpenter ants will travel long distances to forage for food and bring it back to the nest. So if you hear faint rustling noises in your walls or inside your woodwork, this is a sign as well.

 

If you feel you have Carpenter Ants, you may want a one-time treatment or continued service treatment plan covering multiple other pests.  If you want just a one-time treatment for carpenter ants, we will come out and do a thorough inspection and treatment for $185.

This treatment is guaranteed to rid you of your pest for 60 days. If another treatment is needed after the 60 day period, your situation is more drastic and would need additional treatment at a reduced rate of  $90.
