Carpenter ants are bigger than 'normal' ants... and can do a lot more damage than them too.
While they don't actually eat wood, they do tunnel through it ...and sometimes, through other materials as well.
In addition to seeing larger, and/or winged, ants, you can also sometimes hear them chewing in the walls...and quite often you will find piles of sawdust-like material (called frazz).
Because they do do damage, the sooner you deal with a carpenter ant problem, the better.
Give Ross a call at (705)534-7863and he will help you to identify the sort of ant problem you have and most importantly, will help you to solve it.... responsibly.
Or you can email us at Cottage Country Pest Control .
And yes, he works weekends, although they are tending to get booked up very quickly :)
