Carpenter ants

Color: The Carpenter Ants have a varied coloration, ranging from reddish brown to dull black, and exhibiting hue gradients from red to yellow.

Size: Up to 1 inch or 25 millimetres long (workers can be 3 to 13 mm), nearly 5 times the size of a typical pavement ant or black garden ant.

Description: Carpenter ants are pesky insects that can cause damage to wooden structures in your home. They are large and black or brown in color, and can be found both inside and outside of your home. These ants do not actually eat wood, but instead carve out tunnels and nests in the wood to make their homes. If left untreated, carpenter ants can cause significant damage to your home over time. It is important to address any infestations promptly to prevent further damage.
