The Secret Saboteurs
Carpenter ants, often confused with termites, are one of the most structurally damaging pests. While termites consume wood, carpenter ants excavate it to create intricate tunnel systems for their colonies. These insects can cause significant harm before their presence becomes evident.
Detecting the Intruders
Spotting a carpenter ant infestation can be a challenging task. You might notice frass (wood dust and debris from their excavations) or observe ants foraging for food. Hearing faint rustling sounds within your walls or noticing structural weaknesses can also be telltale signs.
The Underlying Damage
Unchecked carpenter ant infestations can lead to significant structural damage. Their tunneling weakens the wooden structures in your home and if left untreated, can result in costly repairs.
