The carpenter ant gets its name from their love of wood. Unlike termites, carpenter ants do not eat wood, but they are excellent at tunneling through it to build their nests. Typically, they will find dead wood and build their nests in the tunnels created by their extremely efficient chewing. They prefer dead, damp wood, but their strength allows them to wreak havoc in almost any kind of wood. Because Minnesota is a relatively moist climate, most homes will provide carpenter ants with an opportunity to build a nest. Exterior wood, such as in trim, window frames, soffits, and fascia, is constantly exposed to the elements and is therefore an excellent location for carpenter ants to do their work. If you have not seen many carpenter ants, but have noticed the presence of saw dust, there are probably carpenter ants nesting in wood out of your view.
