How to get rid of carpenter ants?
To get a pest problem under control, inspection is the first and foremost step. Carpenter ants normally nest in dead or water damaged portions of standing trees, stumps or logs or burrow under fallen logs or stones. Nests look like hollow “galleries” burrowed out of wood. Carpenter Ants will destroy the wood in your home if they nest in your residence. Carpenter Ants will also invade your home in search of food sources. Foraging Carpenter Ants will travel up to 100 yards from the nest to find food.
