CARPENTER ANTS IN LAS VEGAS

Summertime in Las Vegas we see several types of ants. The carpenter ant the type of ant that can come into your home and cause damage - They usually come into buildings through cracks around doors, windows, or through holes for wires. They will also crawl along overhead wires, shrubs, or tree limbs that touch the building far above the ground.

Carpenter ants get their name because they excavate wood in order to build their nests. Their excavation results in smooth tunnels inside the wood. These are large ants ranging in size from one-quarter inch for a worker ant to up to three-quarters inch for a queen.

Carpenter ants build their nests outdoors in various wood sources, including tree stumps, firewood or landscaping. Make sure that firewood and building materials are not stored next to your home. Carpenter ants like to build nests in stacks of wood.

They need a constant water source to survive. Carpenter ants will enter the house through wet, damaged wood. All species of these ants mainly attack wood that is or has been wet and damaged by mold. Even though these black carpenter ants first invade wet, decayed wood, they may soon begin building paths through dry, undamaged wood.

If they enter your home they pose a threat to your property. Contact a licensed pest control expert immediately if you think you have a carpenter ant infestation to avoid structural damage.
