What Are Carpenter Ants?

Carpenter ants are large ants that range in color between black, red, or black and red, and are commonly found in Milford, as well as many places throughout the United States.  Carpenter ants are larger than pavement ants and odorous house ants, generally 1/8 to 1/2 an inch in length, that live in large colonies.  This species of ants can be regularly found indoors wandering in bathrooms and kitchens.   

 

Why Are They Dangerous?

Carpenter ants are not known to be carriers of disease and they rarely bite, but they are the most dangerous species of ants found in Milford.  These ants initially enter your home in search of food and continue to build their colony within the security of your home.  Carpenter ants build nests and tunnels for their colonies by digging their way through wood, often the wooden structure of your home.  By the time you have noticed carpenter ants in your home, their destruction to the structural integrity of your home can be so severe it is unrepairable.
