Carpenter Ants

  • They form nests in moist, decaying wood and then move into more sound wood
  • Most of the species found in Minnesota are black in color and range from â…› to ½ of an inch in size
  • The main colony is most likely outside your home or business but satellite colonies are likely to be found inside
  • They get inside through window frames, door frames and eaves to look for food
  • Although they do not eat wood like termites, carpenter ants will carve galleries into wood for nesting leaving the wood damaged
  • Structural damage can leave home and business owners a large repair bill
  • DIY treatments for carpenter ants are rarely effective because unless every ant in the colony is killed, they will be back before you know it
