CARPENTER ANT MANAGEMENT

There are several nonchemical measures that can help prevent infestations:

  • Trim tree branches and shrubs away from structures to prevent access;
  • Seal off potential entry points such as where utility lines enter a structure;
  • Reduce mulch around building perimeters to a depth of 2 to 3 inches to discourage nesting;
  • Eliminate any earth-to-wood contact of structural elements that might promote wood decay;
  • Replace decayed or damaged wood and correct problems that cause decay such as clogged rain gutters or leaky pipes;
  • Increase ventilation to damp areas such as attic or subfloor spaces;
  • Store firewood off the ground and several feet away from structures; and
  • Remove potential food sources inside a structure and store them in tightly sealed containers.

Most carpenter ant inspections and perimeter treatments start at around $100 bucks.  Thanks!
