About Carpenter Ants

Carpenter Ants are among the largest ants and are black or dark brownish-red colored. They are about ¼”-⅜” long. Carpenter ants are very common in Massachusetts and New Hampshire areas. They prefer damp environments so they survive quite nicely with our weather near the coast. Warmer weather and moisture in the spring in attracts carpenter ants as they look for a new home. These ants make paths through the wood in your home and feed on any type of food or drinks that might have been spilled around your home. The queen can lay up to 15-20 eggs at a time, while the workers expand their home by digging through the wood.
