Inside the Home
After about 3-6 years, colonies produce winged males and queens which are active from late spring through midsummer. This is the time of the year the home and business owner needs to be particularly vigilant.
Because carpenter ants infest dark places, many times they can be living in the home unseen.
Watch out for unexplained saw dust!
Always be on the lookout for saw dust material along the edge of the wall, especially in unfinished portions of the house. In the basement, proof. technicians usually find frass (saw dust material mixed with dead ant pieces caused by carpenter ant activity) along the wall underneath upstairs kitchens or bathrooms.
