Discovering an infestation inside a home is a no-brainer. Most of the colony will be visible as they travel along trails to and from nesting areas. Locating the exact nesting area can be a challenge as they tend to bore deep into wooden materials and wall cavities. Carpenter Ants tend to live deep within the interior of the structure and build large colonies that can create serious structural damage as they chew through the wood.
Fortunately, Carpenter ants do not sting but can bite. They are often mistaken for termites. Close inspection may be needed to distinguish the two insects. As with other species of ants, Carpenter Ants have segmented bodies and antenna’s that are bent. In the Phoenix Area Carpenter Ants swarm in the late spring on thru the summer months.
Though they construct nests in wood they feed on a wide range of food items. Carpenter Ants can be identified by their large, size, relatively large eyes, smooth bodies and multiple worker castes. They are generally most active at night, especially during our Arizona Summer heat. Outside they can be found on the ground, and/or on tree trunks.
