Carpenter Ant Control
Carpenter Ant Exterminators – Eliminate Ants at Their Source
Thomas Pest Services provides numerous treatment options along with ongoing maintenance services for carpenter ant control in Albany, Troy and throughout the Capital District and Adirondack region. While you only may see a few ants in and around your home, there could be a much larger colony in the area leading to a more serious ant problem. Our carpenter ant exterminators will identify the severity of the infestation, and provide the needed corrective applications to exterminate carpenter ant colonies.
Carpenter ants are notably the largest ants found in New York. They range in colors – typically black, red, and brown – and measure up 5/8 of an inch long. Carpenter ants can infest anything from residential and commercial structures, hollowed tree voids, and even the foam insulation in your home. Carpenter ants are nocturnal by nature and typically feed at night. Carpenter ants can tunnel their way into your home through any gap or crack and will often look for dead, soft and decaying wood to nest in. These weak areas vulnerable to moisture are where carpenter ants will build their nest, such as around and under windows, roof eaves, decks and porches. Carpenter ant colonies are often found in the walls of a home. Outside, ants prefer the dead wood of tree stumps and wood piles.
Controlling Carpenter Ants In and Around Your Home
Our professional team members will rid your home of carpenter ants by performing a thorough interior and exterior inspection to assess carpenter ant movement and activity. After the evaluation, our team will design and implement a treatment protocol utilizing the most recent advances in ant control technology and product selection. Treatments may include applications to cracks and crevices and other areas prone to nesting and traveling ants on the interior and exterior of the structure.
Ongoing Maintenance to Control Carpenter Ants
While one-time treatments for carpenter ants can be effective at eliminating ants you see, ongoing treatments are necessary to ensure the colony is destroyed as the life cycles of each ant evolve. As additional eggs in the colony hatch, additional monitoring and treatments are necessary to break the cycle and fully eradicate all members of the colony. Our ant exterminating professionals will recommend an effective timeline for ongoing maintenance and additional treatments to effectively eliminate the entire colony of carpenter ants inside and outside your home. Contact us today to get rid of bothersome ants and protect your home from further infestation.
Reduce Your Risk Against Carpenter Ants
To prevent the infestation of carpenter ants, Thomas Pest Services recommends routine trimming of trees and shrubs around your home’s foundation. Any cracks in the exterior of your home should be sealed properly. Remove standing wood piles and other debris from the areas surrounding your home. Check your interior for cracks or leaks and keep sources of water away from the foundation of the house.
