If you’ve seen a few ants scuttling around on the floor, they might be just having a look around. However, they might be the sign of a larger ant infestation. Unless an ant is bright red, most people probably don’t give much thought to seeing one or two ants scurrying around their home. However, you should. If those ants are particularly large, then you may have carpenter ants. The damage that carpenter ants can do can be quite extensive, which is why you’ll want to schedule a carpenter ant inspection the moment you think you might have them.
This type of ants are nomadic and very notorious for the destruction of plants and animals life in the path. The army ants of tropical Kenya travel in columns, eating insect and other invertebrate along their way. The colony tends to rest for serval days or week while the queen lay eggs. While travelling, the growing larvae is carried along by the workers
Carpenter Ant Damage
Carpenter ants aren’t going to bite the way fire ants do but they can cause thousands of dollars in home damage if the problem is not addressed. The thing about carpenter ants is that they are actually very beneficial to the environment. They chew up wood and turn it into fine sawdust, which eventually rots and becomes valuable compost used for environmental growth. Of course, you don’t want this to occur inside of your house.
Although carpenter ants cause damage to wood structures in a similar fashion as termites, they don’t actually feed on wood like termites do. Termites eat through wood because they feed on the cellulose that’s found in wood. Carpenter ants are just looking to nest inside of the wood. They are simply digging tunnels into decaying wood. Because they aren’t eating the wood, they aren’t going through it as quickly. It can take years for carpenter ants to do serious damage to your home.
But this doesn’t mean that you don’t need to worry about them. You should have the problem addressed right away if you think you have one. This is because it can be tough to identify that you have a carpenter ant problem, which means that by the time you do, they may have already been causing damage to your home for a long period of time.
