Our team here at AAA Exterminators, Inc., has come up with a few common clues that can tell you if you’re looking at this type of ant or another pest.
As carpenter ants burrow and chew their way through wood, they leave behind piles of sawdust-like wood shavings around your door jambs and windows. What do they actually look like? They are not remarkable in their appearance, and they are somewhat easy to identify physically. They’re about a quarter-inch to a half-inch long and colored black, red, or some combination of the two colors.
That takes care of the seeing, well how about the listening? If you hear noises inside your walls, this could also indicate that you’ve got carpenter ants in Dallas, OR. If you go a step further and tap on the walls in your home and it sounds hollow, then it’s likely that these ants are the culprits.
Experienced and capable exterminators have the skills and safe pesticides to get rid of carpenter ants and prevent them from creating any damage to the wood elements of your home.
