One of the most common ants Northeast Ohioans experience through the spring and summer months is the carpenter ant. Black and large – usually 1/2 to 5/8 of an inch – homeowners want to avoid finding them indoors at all costs. You need TNT Exterminating, among the top rated of carpenter ant exterminators in Akron, Ohio.
The experts at TNT understand that preventing carpenter ants indoors starts with preventing them outdoors. This is our priority because carpenter ants are more than a nuisance. They can be highly destructive.
Carpenter ants build their nests inside dead and damp wood. This can be fallen logs and firewood, as well as wood buildings and structures, including your foundation. Once they have infested a structure, then tend to leave very little evidence other than a sawdust-type material near the nest. Our experts advise calling if you observe large numbers of carpenter ants around your home or any signs of debris in or around the home. Carpenter ants typically begin nesting outdoors, but will move indoors during cooler weather, so even one or two in your home could be indicative of an infestation.
