Carpenter Ant Exterminator – All Natural Pest Elimination specializes in permanent wood protection to guard the structure of your home against carpenter ants and other wood destroying organisms such as termites, wood beetles and dry rot fungus.
When seeking a carpenter ant exterminator, it’s important to not only remove the carpenter ants that are infecting the home, but to also prevent any possible future infections. Most all pest control companies don’t address the full problem. They may exterminate carpenter ants on the surface level, but there is nothing preventing another infestation coming back in the future. All Natural Pest Elimination provides permanent protection against any possible future infestations with our permanent wood protection treatments.
Carpenter Ants are typically larger ants that nest in dead wood, which may cause serious damage when infestations occur in homes. They are called Carpenter Ants because they hollow out wood to create their nests, but they are also known to excavate galleries in insulation, shingles, and other building materials. One of their favorite nesting places is inside the wall voids of homes which provides a climate-controlled environment for nesting, thus allowing them to forage inside or outside for food and water.
A colony consists of one or more queens and workers of various sizes, ranging from 3/16” to 3/4”. Mature colonies typically contain 10,000 to 15,000 workers; however, colonies located in the Pacific Northwest have been found to contain up to 100,000 workers.
Carpenter Ants are primarily nocturnal and rely heavily upon physical cues, chemical trails, and possibly smell to locate food. They may feed on overripe fruit, dead or live insects, household sweets, meats and other proteins.
