Carpenter Ant Prevention | Bug Tip Tuesday

  • Replace moisture-damaged wood.
  • Prevent moisture from wood or lumber that is stored in a garage or near the house by elevating it to allow air circulation.
  • Store firewood as far away from buildings as possible.
  • Remove tree and shrub stumps and roots.
  • Trim branches that overhang the home, so branches don’t touch the house (including roof and eaves).
  • Prune branches that touch electrical lines. Carpenter ants can travel from branches to lines and use them to get into buildings.
