Introducing the Destructive Carpenter Ants

You may be familiar with the common black ants that will rentlentlessly invade your pantry in search of food, there's another ant that can also be problematic - the carpenter ant. Unlike its pesky relatives, the carpenter ant can wreak havoc on your home by burrowing into moist wood and creating extensive tunnels. If left untreated, this can lead to significant structural damage.

But how do you know if you're dealing with carpenter ants?

Look out for tell-tale signs like small piles of sawdust on your floor near the walls. While these ants are nocturnal and typically stay hidden, they're attracted to sweet food and will emerge from their hiding spots at night to feed in your kitchen.

Unlike termites, carpenter ants don't eat wood. However, their constant burrowing weakens the integrity of timber over time.
