Two Easy Ways To Identify A Carpenter Ant Infestation

  1. Carpenter Ants make burrows in damp wood, but can move further to damage solid wood. If you see ants around around damp firewood, and decaying or damaged wood siding or wood porches, you may have carpenter ants.
  2. Unlike termites, carpenter ants do not eat wood. They do however leave behind a very fine sawdust as they burrow into wood to create their nests. Fresh sawdust is an indicator you may have carpenter ants.

Pests Commonly Confused with Carpenter Ants

How Do You Get Carpenter Ants?
Carpenter ants build their nests,seeking shelter, in damp or rotting wood but they can burrow deeper into solid wood. Infestations usually occur as a result of a nest developing close to home, perhaps from damp firewood or part of a rotting porch, and then spreading into the home.

If you suspect you have carpenter ants you should have your home inspected as soon as possible to prevent the ants from causing any structural damage.

Hazards Of Not Treating Carpenter Ants

Reasons To Treat Your Carpenter Ant Problem Immediately
Carpenter ants don’t eat wood, but they do burrow into soft and weak wood to build their nests. And although the damage they cause is less significant than that of termites, they should not be left untreated. As the carpenter ant colony increases they spread further into the wood, causing increasingly severe damage.

What To Expect From Our Treatment

Target The Source: First we identify and target the source of your pest problem with our custom treatment.

Inside Treatment: We then treat the baseboards inside all rooms including the kitchen, living room, bedrooms, bathrooms, basements, and garages. Wherever there is the possibility for a pest to enter your home or make residence, we create a barrier to protect you. We deploy a variety of techniques depending on what works best for your situation, including residual powder, gel, and bait.

Outside Treatment: We create a protective barrier around your home using a granular base around the foundation. We then treat windows and doors, as well as under siding, to keep the pests out. We will also place a granular bait in your flower and mulch beds so that bait is taken back to any potential nests, destroying them.


Our Guarantee


At Aptive Environmental, we guarantee our treatment plan for one full year. If any new Carpenter Ant problems or other covered pests, we will treat immediately and at no cost to you.

“Immediately” means you are our priority – not when we can fit you into our schedule.

The barriers we put in place to protect your home and family against pests will naturally break down over time. This is why over the course of the year we will regularly reapply treatments to ensure your home is protected. For more details on our treatment schedule read our Home Protection Plan page or give us a call.

Your home is your largest investment.
Let Aptive Environmental protect it against pests!
