Carpenter Ants get their name from the fact that they chew through
wood to make nests. However, they do not eat wood like termites. They
eat sweet foods, pet food, and other insects. Carpenter Ants are
commonly found in wooded areas, nesting in trees, logs, and stumps.
Carpenter Ants may also be found in man-made structures, including
wooden doors, ceiling beams, floor joists, under bathtubs, and attic
Homeowners commonly mistake winged Carpenter Ants for Termites.
However, it is very easy to tell the difference. Carpenter Ants have
sharply bent (elbowed) antennae while Termites' antennae are straight.
There is also a difference between the types of damage they cause to
wood. Carpenter Ants produce sawdust as a result of their chewing
the wood out to make their nests larger. While Termites produce little pellets from the wood they consume. Call EASTON PEST MANAGEMENTfor more information for your Carpenter Ant problems.
