Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants like a moist environment and are often found inside of rotting wood. Though oftentimes, they begin a burrowing process as a team to make holes and cause decay. This can cause huge issues if that wood is part of the main structure of your home, as it will eventually disintegrate from the damage.

Advantages of Ants

Despite the damage they can cause, ants do have some advantages. As they like to burrow through wood, fallen trees and other woods, they will decay faster in the hands of the ant colony. This means nutrients will enter the soil faster, enriching the earth. Obviously, this is only beneficial for the outside of your home, so it’s still important to remove ants from inside your property as soon as possible.

If you see any damp wood around your home caused by leaks or drainage issues, it’s essential to perform those repairs in a timely fashion, so the wood doesn’t attract pesky ants. Seal up any holes or cracks in your home’s foundation and make sure trees and shrubs are trimmed on your property.
