Carpenter Ants Identification & Appearance

Identifying a carpenter ant infestation is oftentimes as simple as noticing an ant or ants on your property. Ranging in length from 1/8 to ½ of an inch with the queen typically larger, this species of ant is commonly black but may be found in shades of red, red and black or brown. Although these ants live primarily outdoors they will establish satellite colonies in your home and are frequently found in areas such as the kitchen as they search for sustenance in the form of live or dead insects, sweets, fats and meats. They are also likely to be found in areas where there is excessive moisture present. Rooms that contain pipes or have access to gutters are susceptible to intrusion as are leaky roofs.Get Rid Of Carpenter Ants seattle control service
