Wood Destroying Ants -
There are a few different species of carpenter ants. They largest being Camponotus pennsylvanicus. It is a misconception that carpenter ants eat wood. What they love to do with wood is evacuate tunnels and living chambers. Like us they see wood as a great way to build a home.
In Connecticut, there are a lot of different ant species. Only a few really become a problem for a homeowner. The two ants that bug us the most are carpenter ants and sugar ants. No matter the ant size, we will attack them where it hurts the most - at the heart of the colony. The products we use to eliminate an ant problem, work by transfer. The worker ants either track it back to the colony or carries it back in their gut. Then it transfer it by contact or by feeding the colony the bait they harvested . Either way it will make its way to the leader of the army, the queen. Without a queen to resupply the troops the colony will collapse. As a added benefit the exterior treatment will stay in place to protect your home for months to come.
