Carpenter ants are more than just a nuisance black ant you can see in your home. Carpenter ants can cause homes in the US thousands of dollars in damages and repairs every year. They live in colonies of thousands and will reside inside rotting or water damaged wood. Carpenter ants do not eat wood but instead excavate the wood in the form of sawdust to make galleries for their nests. If seen in your home, they can become a serious invader. Carpenter ant colonies consist of a main central colony that needs a constant source of moisture to survive.
