Have you seen large ants in your home? These ants could be Carpenter Ant scouts. A scout is sent out to forage for food. The scout will travel along telephone wire or branches or on the ground to get into your home. Killing the scouts will not kill the colony, that is why calling a professional at Suburban Exterminating is important.
Multiple Homes for Carpenter Ants
Just like us, when the carpenter ant’s home gets too small, they move or expand. In the ant world, the ants make one main nest and many, many satellite colonies. Their homes can be found in your attic, window sills, trees, even on your bookcase.
