Ants are a common pest. They are so common, in fact, that we hardly even notice when they are around. Well, unless they are in our sugar bowl or some other place that we have no choice but to notice! But, we really need to start paying attention to these little pests when they are foraging around in our yards because it won’t be long before they find a way to forage their way right into our homes!

Ants come in all shapes, sizes, and colors and they are so numerous that we tend to believe that they are harmless little creatures that pose no real threat at all; but this is not always the case. Take the Pharaoh ant, for example. This ant can spread germs and disease when it invades a hospital. And any ant can contaminate your food supply in the pantry, but it is the carpenter ant that can cause the most trouble.

Carpenter ants are those very large black or red (or a combination of the two) ants that you occasionally see around your home. The problem with carpenter ants is that they will burrow into wood to create a comfortable nesting site for their family which is an ever expanding proposition. This would not be a problem if carpenter ants only chose the trunks of dead or rotting trees as their nesting site, but sometimes they prefer the wood inside your walls, under your floors, or along your porch to live inside. Over time, carpenter ants can severely damage the wood in your home causing extensive repair costs.
