Wildwoods Pest Control_Protecting Your Northeast Gresham Home From Carpenter Ants

Gresham’ northeast neighborhood is a residential utopia with plenty of outdoor activities for school-aged kids as well as commercial developments their parents can enjoy. This charming area of Gresham is defined by its family-centered ethos, but even its close community can’t prevent infestations of carpenter ants.

Although termites get more attention, carpenter ants are far more common in Northeast Gresham. Carpenter ants do more damage than any other wood destroying insect in our area and a fully developed nest can do significant, irreparable damage to your home if not addressed promptly.

A common misconception is that carpenter ants actually eat the wood in your home—what they actually do is excavate galleries in the wood for nesting and laying eggs. The sudden appearance of waste that looks like sawdust is a clear sign of carpenter ants. An effective way to exterminate carpenter ants is to do a solid perimeter treatment, knowing that the ants must cross it in order to bring food back to the nest.
