What Are Carpenter Ants?
Carpenter ants are one of the most common ant species found in homes and businesses in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas area and are known for being one of the largest ant species in the state. Among the 14 different species of carpenter ants, the black carpenter ant is the largest of all. These ants are primarily found in wooded areas outdoors, though they can also invade and live indoors. You can find them excavating galleries within insulation and wall voids in residential and commercial structures, or outside in rotting fence posts, stumps, and old firewood. Rather than eating wood, they push bits of sawdust (frass) out of the tunnels they create. When accumulated these can seriously compromise your property’s structural integrity.
Don’t wait before your home or business is already structurally damaged from the inside.
