When people think of home damage caused by insects, they usually think termites, however there is an ant species that can cause costly home repairs by damaging wooden elements. If you find ants in your home, call Terminix immediately to schedule a no obligation home inspection. One of our professional technicians will complete a thorough analysis of your home to determine the nature and severity of the infestation, providing you with a plan to eradicate the pests.
If it turns out that you are facing carpenter ants extermination, it’s important to take care of this situation as quickly as possible. Carpenter ant extermination will eliminate these insects, which are very difficult to get rid of without calling a professional. Carpenter ants can quickly spread out of control. Foragers will set up satellite colonies, looking for areas in your home that might have damp wood (for example in attics, crawl spaces, decks, porches, under windows and roof eaves). They build tunnels connecting the colonies, making them extremely difficult to find, let alone fight.
The nuisance factor is one thing, however, exterminating carpenter ants as soon as you’re aware of their presence is important because they may well end up damaging your home, leaving you with costly repair bills. While they don’t actually eat wood (the way that termites do), carpenter ants are attracted to damp wood as a nesting site, and they chew through the wood to make tunnels. Unless you contact a carpenter ant exterminator, the insects could be chewing through wooden elements in your house, weakening them to the point that they require replacement. So if you see any hint of these destructive insects —mounds of sawdust, grooves cut in exposed wood, or lines of foraging ants— or you are concerned that they might be present, call Terminix to request a no obligation home inspection.
The cost for a carpenter ants extermination treatment will vary according to the severity of the infestation and environmental factors. For example, how many colonies are there? Are they located in difficult to access spaces? Are they located outdoors, indoors or both? Once an experienced technician has thoroughly examined your home, they’ll be able to provide an accurate carpenter ants extermination cost.
Considering the severity of damage that these wood chewing ants are capable of causing to your home, the cost of getting rid of them will be relatively minor. Left to their own devices, carpenter ants can tunnel through wood in a house to the point where windowsills have to be replaced, porches are left structurally unsound and eaves troughs begin to fall down because the wood they’re fastened to has rotted. If you see any sign of these insects around your home, call Terminix for proven effective carpenter ant extermination services. Our professional exterminator technician will ensure the carpenter ants are eradicated, preventing the risk of further damage to your home, and we back our extermination services with our Ultimate Protection Guarantee. We even offer an ongoing protection plan to ensure they don’t return.
