I’ve found winged ants near vents and windows. What does this mean?

Flying ants are responsible for reproduction and will often scout for nesting sites during the warmer months of the year. If you find a single flying ant, it’s possible that one simply flew through an opening in your home. However, more than one in a short period of time could indicate that you have a carpenter ant infestation on your hands. Carpenter ants aren’t your everyday kitchen nuisance — they can cause serious damage to wooden structures and need to be addressed as soon as possible. If you’ve noticed flying ants in the winter, it’s almost a sure sign that you have an infestation somewhere in your home. Contact our ant pest control experts to get started with an inspection.
