How Harmful Are Carpenter Ants?

Carpenter ants can be harmful to your health and property, and any infestations should be taken seriously. Unlike termites, carpenter ants do not eat wood. However, they excavate it to create tunnels for their nests, which can cause extensive damage and compromise the structural integrity of your property over time. Carpenter ants are also known to forage for food within homes, which can lead to contamination of food sources. Due to these potential risks, it's crucial to tackle a carpenter ant infestation promptly and effectively.

Why Do I Suddenly Have Carpenter Ants?

Sudden appearances of carpenter ants in your home can be alarming and are usually a sign that they have been attracted by specific conditions or available resources. 

Here are some factors that attract carpenter ants:

  • Moisture and water damage: Carpenter ants are particularly attracted to moist, decaying wood. Leaking pipes, roofs, or windowsills can create an ideal environment for them to nest.
  • Access to food: These ants are drawn to sweet substances, proteins, and other food remnants commonly found in homes. Open food containers, pet food bowls, and garbage cans can attract them inside.
  • Wooden structures: Homes with a lot of wood – especially untreated wood or wood that was previously damaged by water or other pests – provide perfect nesting sites for carpenter ants.
  • Gaps and cracks in the exterior: Small openings around doors, windows, utility lines, and foundation cracks serve as entry points for carpenter ants searching for food or nesting sites.
  • Landscape materials: Stacks of firewood, tree stumps, and mulch close to your home's foundation can harbor carpenter ant colonies, which may then move into the house.
