Carpenter ants can be a nuisance in the Newtown PA area. Especially in the spring when these pests emerge and your property and home becomes susceptible to infestations. Carpenter ants form colonies and attack damp wood to breed and thrive. This means your deck, fencing, and lattice work can be destroyed once the winter leaves and the dry air turns into humid conditions and rain.
What is the difference between Carpenter Ants and Termites?
Termites, just like carpenter ants, are attracted to wood. They seek out anything from plant debris to damage on the outside of your home. Termites are especially destructive because of their ability to tunnel and bring back destroyed wood to their colonies. This makes them hard to track down and impossible to eliminate by yourself.
