Signs You Have an Infestation

Carpenter Ants

As with many infestations, your first sign of carpenter ant problems often will be seeing the carpenter ants themselves. But when a colony needs food, it will send some of its workers far and wide to find it – so seeing the insect doesn’t mean there’s a nest. Carpenter ants prefer to nest in moist wood and they leave behind wood shavings after they drill into the lumber to make their homes, so keep a close eye on rotting wood for signs of these mini lumberjacks.
