Carpenter ants are quite large (up to an inch in length!) and make their homes in dead, damp wood. This usually consists of dead trees, but it becomes a problem when they decide to reside in the structures of our homes. While they don’t consume the wood like termites, they can still cause significant structural damage. So if you see large black ants crawling around your home, or if there are piles of sawdust where there shouldn’t be, you may have a problem! Call Burns and we’ll help you keep your home upright!
