Ant infestations are a serious problem for homeowners in the metro-Atlanta area. If left untreated, ant infestations can cause serious damage to your home. Carpenter ants will nest within wood, which can do severe harm to any wood in your residence. Seeking help from a professional ant pest control company is the best course of action. The source of a carpenter ant infestation is typically going to be a point of entry such as a pipe, foundation, crack, attic vent, telephone line, or electric wire. Typically, ants are not going to nest in dry wood, but rather wood that has been weakened by decay, moisture, or insects.
Indications of Infestation
If you start seeing ants regularly in your home, you may have an infestation. The presence of ants does not necessarily mean there is an entire ant colony within your home though. Carpenter ants will travel far away from their nests to find food. If you do have an infestation, you may notice rustling sounds inside the woodwork or within the walls. You may also notice piles of wood shavings underneath wooden items. If you start to see ants with large wings coming out from hidden crevices or the ceiling, it is almost definite that you have an infestation. You may mistake an ant infestation for a termite infestation if you notice damaged wood. Examining the damaged wood further, you can see the difference.
