While there are 39 different types of ants in the Northeast, Carpenter Ants are common in many NYC apartments and buildings and they are certainly the most destructive. Carpenter Ants can be found nesting in window frames, wall voids, basement beams, and under the floor. Ants hollow out any wooden furniture or internal beams, and if left untreated, can cause permanent damage to homes.
How Do I know if I have Carpenter Ants?
Most people know they have ants when they see them walking in and around their house. Other signs include:
- Small dirt or sand mounds on turf or soil
- Small piles of sand/ dirt near stone or cement slabs
- Displaced soil
Identification of the ant is essential in understanding the best method of treating it. Each species has its specific types of conditions it needs. Once the species has been determined, the inspection and treatment is much more effective and targeted. Pest Away’s in-depth knowledge of all ant species will allow us to locate the source and identify the nature of the underlying problem.
