What About Carpenter Ants in My Athens Home?
Carpenter ants are enormous insects that build nests inside of wood structures. They use their mandibles to hollow out sections of trees, seasoned firewood, or the exterior of your property. Swarms begin to appear in April and May here in Athens. They require a water source to survive, so our team will look to seal openings, remove resources, and recommend removing building materials and other habitat items away from the home.
Do Ants Build Nests Inside in Athens, GA?
One of the reasons that ants can be so challenging to eliminate from a home is because they can set up their colony inside of the house’s structure. Their pheromone trails can lead you toward the various openings that they might use to travel between the exterior and interior of your structure.
Our team will work with you to identify places where caulking and sealing can eliminate passage from the outside to the inside of your home. We will then use safe products to remove their trail pheromone to prevent ongoing infestations. If a colony establishes itself inside, then we will work to remove that as well.
