You don’t have to be an arborist to appreciate trees. Take your family to the Mount Pisgah Arboretum in Eugene and you will see hundreds of varieties. When you think of wood, lumber and construction might come to mind. When we think of wood, we think of carpenter ants.
Carpenter ants are big. They are among the largest ant species and they love wood. Unlike termites, carpenter ants do not eat wood. They chew through it. The lumber used to keep your home standing is their favorite place to make colonies. Carpenter ants tunnel through wood to create massive galleries and pathways. The damage they cause can destroy your home. Since they are hidden behind your sheetrock, you won’t see one until the infestation is severe. Instead of looking for ants, look for the signs of an infestation. If you see piles of sawdust and bits of discarded wings or ant parts, you have carpenter ants. Before you panic, call Pointe Pest Control. Our technicians have years of experience eliminating carpenter ant colonies. We can locate the colony and eliminate the problem.
