Carpenter Ants have a valuable role to play.  They tunnel through rotting wood, opening it up to be more quickly broken down.  They also eat many pest insects.  However, they are bad news if they decide to set up shop in your home.

Carpenter Ants can be extremely destructive if they infest your house in Boston or Norwood.  They will attack any wood that is moist, so locations near water sources are prime targets.  Any areas which have leaks from plumbing or water infiltrating the building can host a colony.  Basements, sills, joists, window frames, and cabinetry around dishwashers and sinks are likely spots.  For this reason the presence of carpenter ants can actually indicate a moisture problem you aren’t aware of.  Dealing quickly with any moisture problems may prevent a carpenter ant infestation.

If you see any of these large (much larger than common ants) black or brown ants in or around your house, you know you have a problem. You may also see the sawdust-like material they leave behind after excavating. While they do not eat wood, as termites do, their tunneling can necessitate expensive repairs to your home. You should act quickly if you suspect an infestation, and call on a reputable pest control expert to deal with it.
