Common Signs of Carpenter Ants
Carpenter ants are easily one of the most troublesome pests in New Hampshire. Although they play an important ecological role by turning wood into sawdust that can decompose quickly and promote environmental growth, they can cause serious structural damage to homes and businesses. Some of the most common signs of carpenter ants include:
Wood Shavings: As we’ll discuss in more detail below, carpenter ants destroy wood and leave shavings and sawdust (frass) behind. If you notice wood shavings in your basement, garage, or another secluded location, you most likely have a carpenter ant infestation on your hands.
Strange Noises: Carpenter ants aren’t like wasps or rodents; you won’t hear them unless you’re listening closely. That said, large numbers will cause a rustling sound that emanates from walls, hollow doors, and other wooden structures.
Winged Ants: Winged ants are a sign of a late-stage infestation. They may appear inside or outside, so don’t shrug them off just because they aren’t inside of your home. Winged carpenter ants’ purpose is to reproduce and create more nests, so call our Manchester pest control experts as soon as you notice winged ants in or around your home.
Shedding: Just as you might find sawdust where carpenter ants have nested, you will also find shed wings near window sills, vents, and other openings around your home as they look for new nesting opportunities.
