Guest or Pest???

Rainy days are perfect for most ant species and none more so than Carpenter Ants.  Unlike termites, carpenter ants don’t damage sound wood; they do however excavate water damaged wood to provide a colony with living space. 

 When rain causes damage to roofs, eaves, windows, chimney chases and doorways, their living space frequently becomes our homes. 

 To avoid unintentionally inviting carpenter ants in as guests make sure to keep gutters free of leaves, maintain caulking around windows and doors, make sure water does not collect and stand around the base of doors and repair roof leaks as soon as possible.
