Have you been seeing the occasional big black ant in your home at this time of year? Well, that’s a sign that you have an infestation of Carpenter Ants in your home. As the long winter months progress towards spring time, Carpenter Ants that have been over wintering within your walls, attic or in some type of void space, start to come alive. The average colony could be between 1000 to 3000 in size, but more importantly the ants were attracted to your home most likely due to a moisture problem. In other words, water damage. Mostly it is hidden and is hard to detect, but the ants are great inspectors and will always find the source. The technicians at Pro Pest have years of experience and will be happy to do an inspection to determine the course of action that best suits you.
