At American Pest, we can protect your home from destructive carpenter ants through our highly effective residential pest control services. Carpenter ants often invade homes while foraging for food sources; they then typically decide to stay to create additional satellite nests inside of your home to be close to their newly discovered food sources. Once inside they continuously tunnel through your home’s structural wood creating more and more structural damage inside of it as they go. To stop carpenter ants in their tracks, the professionals at American Pest have the experience needed to find all of their nesting areas, provide the necessary targeted treatments to eliminate the infestation, and then will put into place the prevention measures to stop future problems with these damaging ants. In addition to our professional services, you can do the following things in and around your property to help protect it from a carpenter ant infestation.
Remove piles of wood, leaves, fallen trees, and other organic debris from your property that have the potential to attract carpenter ants
Remove overgrown vegetation from the exterior of your home that could allow the ground to retain excess moisture
Seal entry points into your home; inspect the foundation, exterior walls, and exterior doors and windows
Make sure that outdoor trash cans have tight-fitting lids on them; pick up uneaten pet food in-between feedings
