SIGNS OF AN ANT INFESTATION
Ants are a common household pest, which means you’ll likely see a few in your kitchen every so often. The real problem occurs when carpenter ants invade the walls of your home and build nests. These insects are larger than other ants and are usually black with a reddish tinge. Since Carpenter ants build nests in damp or damaged wood, it’s important to call a professional to treat the root of the problem. Signs of an infestation include groups of ants or ant trails in your home, sounds of insects moving within the walls, and damaged or rotten wood on the home’s exterior, especially around the gutters.
While ants might be tiny, when they invade your home they can cause major issues. Some species carry diseases like staphylococcus, streptococcus, and salmonella. Other species, such as carpenter ants, cause property damage by boring into the wood and nesting in the walls, which can harm the structure of your home.
