Carpenter Ant Control in Nassau, Suffolk, New York City, Westchester and New Jersey.
Carpenter Ants are considered serious pests by homeowners. They are large, black, or sometimes red and black from 1/4 inch for a worker and up to 3/4 inch for a queen. Carpenter ants are active indoors during many months of the year, usually during the spring and summer. When ants are active in the house during late winter/early spring (February/March), the infestation (nest) is probably within the household. When carpenter ants are first seen in the spring and summer (May/June), then the nest is likely outdoors and the ants are simply coming in for food.
Under natural conditions, carpenter ants nest in live and dead trees and in rotting logs and stumps. However, they will also construct their nests in houses, telephone poles, and other man-made wooden structures. Nests are begun in deteriorating wood which has been exposed to moisture. The colony will also extend its nest to adjacent, sound wood. Nests in homes are commonly found in porch pillars and roofs, window sills, and wood in contact with soil. Colonies of carpenter ants are often long lived. Each colony is founded by a single fertilized queen. She establishes a nesting site in a cavity in wood. She then rears her first brood of workers. The workers which are reared first assume the task of gathering food with which to feed the next generation of younger larvae. As the food supply becomes more constant, the colony population grows very rapidly until it contains 2,000 or more workers. It may take a colony from three to six years or more to reach this stage.
Each year thereafter, the colony will continue to produce winged queens and males, which leave their nest and conduct mating flights from May through July. The natural food of the ants consists of honeydew from aphids, other insects, and plant juices, but they will readily forage for water and food scraps within the house. Carpenter ant damage is cosmetic and rarely causes structural damage to buildings.
