Posts with the tag: "carpenter ant control and prevention"
When most homeowners think of a highly destructive pest that can cause severe structural damage by attacking their home’s structural wood, the pest that comes to most people’s mind first is the termite; and for good reason! Wood consuming termites are certainly the insect that causes the most severe structural damages to properties. However, they aren’t the only sheriff in town so to speak, the carpenter ant ranks a close second behind them, and while they don’t actually eat the wood they are damaging, they do have the ability to cause significant damage to homes and other properties if proper measures aren’t taken to prevent and control them!
We all know that when it comes to wood-damaging pests, termites are public enemy number one. This means that every other wood-destroying pest gets immediately relegated to the position of number two, or three. But, we would like you to seriously consider avoiding this mindset when it comes to carpenter ants.
