How to Identify Carpenter Ants

With more than 20 subspecies of carpenter ants found throughout the United States, it can be difficult to identify the army of invaders accurately in your home or business. Nonetheless, they are typically either black or dark brown in color, with large jaws for chewing through wood. 

Measuring between ⅜ and ½ of an inch, carpenter ants are often mistaken for termites. Unlike their distant relatives, however, carpenter ants do not eat wood—they only dig complex, structure-weakening tunnels through it. 

Not sure if the ants you’ve found in your living space or workplace are actually carpenter ants? Save time and frustration by letting U.S. Pest Protection’s experts handle identifying your pests, and schedule a free inspection.

Where to Find Carpenter Ants

While some ant species build their nests in yards, carpenter ants prefer the moist or termite-damaged wood in your home or business. Common areas to find carpenter ant colonies include decaying wood around:

  • Windows
  • Chimneys
  • Door Frames
  • Sinks
  • Wall voids

Finding carpenters ants indoors but can’t figure out where they’re coming from? They may have a nest built in a nearby tree, shed, or other outdoor wooden structure. Contact U.S. Pest Protection, and let our certified technicians hunt down the source of your pest problem.
