Minnesota Carpenter Ant ExterminatorCarpenter ants can be a very common and destructive force when they work their way into a home or other structure. Once they take up residence and build a nest inside of a building the results can be devastating. A colony of carpenter ants can wreak havoc by digging or using powerful jaws to bore smooth tunnels through woodwork. They are often drawn to areas with high moisture such as a bathroom or laundry room. Seeing several ants indoors or finding piles of coarse sawdust is reason to call in an experienced Minnesota carpenter ant exterminator at EcoTech. Our pest management professionals are trained to identify a variety of household insects including the large and destructive carpenter ant and quickly eradicate the nest to prevent further damage.

Identify Characteristics of Carpenter Ants

It is easy to mistake one species of household insects for another. Different ant species can be identified by their unique characteristics. Carpenter ants in particular are sometimes mistaken for similar looking non-carpenter ants that do not tunnel through wooden structures.

Here are some identifying characteristics of carpenter ants and nesting colonies:

  • Carpenter Ants are one of the largest ant species.
  • Carpenter Ant Colonies may contain up to 100,000 ants.
  • Colonies are made up of ants of varying sizes that range in size from 3/8” up to 1” long winged queen ants.
  • Worker ants within the carpenter ant colony may be black or red and black in color.
  • Both male and female carpenter ants can have wings.
  • Worker ants within the carpenter ant colony can range in size and do not have wings.
  • Carpenter Ants like moist interior areas and may nest behind tiles or inside the wall in wet places including tubs, showers, dishwashers and sinks.
  • Carpenter Ant infestation can damage woodwork around windows, attics and foundations by digging, chewing and burrowing through wood.
  • Carpenter Ants can bite if the nest is disturbed or they feel threatened.
  • Worker ants seek out sweet foods and are also attracted to tuna that is packed in water.
  • Finding the location of a carpenter ant nest is difficult.
  • Active carpenter ant colonies can sometimes be heard making a rustling sound in their nesting area.
  • Finding one carpenter ant nest behind tile, in a wall or near plumbing is a good indication of more nesting sites inside of the building.
