Carpenter Ant Control Upstate, NY

Carpenter ants get their name from their nest building, where they will excavate the wood and form smooth tunnels inside of the wood. Carpenter ants do not eat wood, they only tunnel and chew through wood to create nests.

The western black carpenter ant colony, when mature, contains about 10-20,000 workers, with large colonies of more than 50,000 individuals. There is usually only one functional, wingless queen per colony.

Swarmers are not produced until the colony is more than two years old. They are produced in the previous year and held over the winter in the nest for release the following year. Swarmers appear from May until August in the eastern United States and from February through June in the west.

Carpenter Ants are a pest that can cause serious damage to your home if left untreated. They create tunnels and galleries in wood for shelter and can cause structural damage to walls, floors, and ceilings. Damp wood is particularly attractive to these pests, so it's important to inspect and treat any areas of moisture around the house or yard.

How We Control Carpenter Ants

Insecticides are often the first line of defense when it comes to pest control for carpenter ants. These pesticides contain active ingredients which help kill the ant colonies quickly and efficiently. When choosing an insecticide, it's important to use one specifically designed for carpenter ants that won't harm pets or non-target animals.

Baits are also an effective pest control method for carpenter ants. These baits contain a slow-acting toxin that the ants carry back to their nests and share with the colony, which eventually eliminates them from the area. It's important to use baits specifically designed for carpenter ants and set out multiple bait stations around the affected area in exactly the right way.

In rare cases we may also use other pest management methods such as vacuuming or steam cleaning to remove carpenter ant colonies from your home or office. Vacuums help remove larvae and eggs, while steam cleaning helps kill adult ants in hard-to-reach areas.

By combining these pest management techniques, our professional exterminators can effectively eliminate carpenter ants and keep them from coming back. It's important to work with a pest control specialist who has experience in pest management and can create an effective pest-management plan specifically tailored to your needs.

There are more than 700 ant species found in the U.S., although only about 25 species commonly infest homes. Ants are social insects that typically live in underground colonies, made up of workers and a queen. Ants will eat practically any kind of food, but are especially attracted to sweets.

Ant identification is relatively simple due to their three distinct body regions: head, thorax and abdomen, as well as antennae. Despite similar construction, ants vary in overall appearance. Small or large ants and brown or black ants are common nicknames for different species. If you do find signs of an ant infestation in your home, contact Bug U Pest Control promptly.

They will be able to inspect your home, perform proper ant species identification, and recommend a course of ant control and extermination.
