Carpenter Ant Control
Outside of the termite, the Carpenter Ant is one of a homeowners worst nightmares. This ant acquires its name from its predilection for wood: it is their substrate of choice for making its home. Carpenter ants are attracted to warm, moist dead wood–making the homes of South Florida perfect targets–and will create vast tunnel networks to create their nests. Unlike the termite, the Carpenter Ant does not eat this wood and a pest control technician or savvy homeowner can identify an infestation by the presence of “frass:” carpenter ant sawdust.
