Usually, when someone finds carpenter ants in their home, they usually mistake them for termites. The reason so many do this is because, unlike other species of ants, the carpenter ant is a large ant that chooses to make rotting and damp wood its home. Sydney, Blackheath, Hazelbrook, Baxland, Bulabura, Faulcorbridge, Glenbrook, Hawkesbury Heights, Winmalee home owners usually have an experience with these ants in some way, whether it’s outside in the garden or inside of the house.
They are usually found eating at night, so you may not see them easily, but you will probably see and hear the evidence of their late night activities. These ants eat many different things including insects, sweets, and even meat that may be found in a kitchen. Small piles of sawdust near wood can also be a sign that they are near. Rather than eating the wood that they nest in, carpenter ants remove it to make room for their galleries. Then there are a lot of them nesting in the wood, you can actually hear a sound coming from the nest.
