Carpenter ants are a very common home invader in California. Normally they are found in logs, tree stumps. However, they will invade our homes in search a for food. Carpenter ants do not eat wood like a termite they tunnel into a board or wall or ceiling and excavate the building materials like foamed insulation board to make a satellite nests. Carpenter ants can cause structural damage. We can find them in the city and in our country homes. All over the North-Bay. Marin/Sonoma and up the California coast. In a home in Healdsburg I found Carpenter eggs in one part of a walls framing. Now in this same wall one board over was an infestation of Subterranean termites. Strange bed-fellows. Subterranean termites and Carpenter ants are not the best of friends. They are natural enemies.

 

Carpenter ant inspection. Our inspector will locate the colony in your home. Finding the Carpenter ant colony is a key part in the treatment. Once we find the nest the inspector can apply an insecticide directly into the nest.

 

EXCELLENCE EXTERMINATING CO. INC. has a very detailed program for the treatment of Carpenter ants.

Interesting Ron, you get the same stigma with these ants as with termites? Are it hard to mediate the situation?
