What Not To Do If You Have Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants have invaded the wet and rotting wood on your property and with the rainy season it might motivate the colony to move inwards as they are more active. They have moved on to making satellite colonies in your house and they have reached maturity because you are now seeing flying ants you even can end up with ants in attic.

 That is bad, and that is what happens when you make mistakes trying to deal with ants. 

Ignoring the external ant population is a huge mistake. It is the primary colony housing the queen and if it is destroyed the worker ants in your home will be easier to handle and kill. So make sure to clean your yard of all wooden pieces in order to get rid of those external carpenter ants.

Another mistake a lot of people make is not dealing with their kitchen. Leaving leftovers and dirty plates around the house and leaving the kitchen dirty and full of dishes in the sink. This is a wonderland for ants. They have infinite access to food and water because of this mess. Leaving your bathtub wet and not closing your toilet cover are also major problems when trying to get rid of carpenter ants. 

You also should not try tearing your house apart trying to find the nests they have made. You can find points of activity but actually finding a carpenter ant nest is very difficult and the repairs to your home will be very expensive.
