Carpenter Ant Identification

Carpenter ants follow a social structure and caste system. There is usually only one wingless queen in a carpenter ant colony. If you see winged male and female carpenter ants appear, it means the colony is well established. Carpenter ant workers range in coloration from black, dark brown to red or yellow. They are quite large for an ant species, ranging from 5/15″ of an inch to well over half an inch.

Carpenter Ant VS Termite Damage

A-Tex Pest Management is well versed in carpenter ants. Carpenter ants have been known to wreak havoc on commercial and residential properties in the Greater Austin, Texas area. Often confused with termites, carpenter ants do not consume wood, merely live in it. They will forage tunnels and galleries in the wooden structures leaving them hollow and weak. If they are left to their destructive ways, they can cause a considerable amount of damage to your home or business.

Carpenter Ant Bites

Carpenter ants will bite in defense when their nest is disturbed. Due to their fairly large size, bites can break the skin and be quite painful. Carpenter ants also spray a defensive chemical of formic acid into the bite wound, which further increases the pain.
