What Are Carpenter Ants?
While small black ants in your home are merely a nuisance, carpenter ants can cause extensive damage to your home’s structure. These large ants can measure up to ½ an inch in length and are generally black, red or a combination of both. Unlike termites, carpenter ants do not eat wood, but just chew holes for tunnels and galleries for their large colonies. Typical signs that you have carpenter ants in your home are small piles of sawdust near woodwork and tiny holes in walls, beams, windows and door frames.
