Carpenter Ant Extermination
Carpenter ants are very common in Quebec. They are about 6 to 25 mm long and their body is divided into three parts. Hundreds of workers can be found in a single nest (colony) dug into wood, where many queens reproduce. Some queens move to other parts of the same dwelling or building to establish satellite colonies. That is how carpenter ants invade homes so quickly. In that way, one house can harbour an infestation of many hundreds of ants!
Carpenter ants invade houses mainly because they find food there: they are particularly attracted to sweet foods and protein. To find them and bring them back to their nests, carpenter ants dig long tunnels in wooden framework, lofts, attics, and floors. In doing so, they cause significant damage to the wooden structures of homes and buildings, weakening the entire supporting structure. Contrary to what one might think, the ants do not eat wood, but remove it from their tunnels.
