Wood Shavings

Carpenter ants dig tunnels in wood to create their nests; they will push the wood shavings out of the openings, creating piles of sawdust-like material.

Holes

You may notice small holes or tunnels in wooden structures of your home, such as walls, ceilings, and floors. This may be a sign that you have a carpenter ant infestation. Carpenter ants will create smooth tunnels through the wood, which will weaken the structure and compromise the integrity of the wood.

Winged Ants

During the spring season, carpenter ant colonies will produce winged ants. These ants will leave the colony to make and start other nests and colonies. If you notice a large number of winged ants in and around your home, it could be a sign of carpenter ants.

Live Ants

While carpenter ants are most active at night, you may not see them during the day. But, if you see live ants crawling around your home or business, it could be a sign of an infestation.
