WE KNOW SOUTH DADE
Watch out for the pesky Florida carpenter ant (Camponotus floridanus). They are known to invade homes and buildings in alarming numbers.
Florida carpenter ants are the largest ants in Florida and can grow from five and a half millimeters to 11 millimeters in length. They are bi-colored, with usual coloring that is part blackish and part brown to light tan. They do not sting, but worker ants of this species can bite and spray a formic acid. They are visible year round, with increased sightings taking place between April and June.
Carpenter ants normally nest in moisture-damaged wood and could even be nesting in the wood in your home. They typically forage for food at night in kitchen areas and around garbage bins. They are also attracted to sweets. They search for moisture and can be frequently seen in bathrooms.
Removing Florida carpenter ants requires tracking these pests back to their nests. This may be a difficult task without professional assistance since their nests are hidden and often difficult to locate. Also, when attempting DIY control measures, you’re likely only treating the satellite colony (or sub-colony), not the primary colony, which may be nesting in a tree outside.
If you’re having trouble with ants in your home, contact Terminix today for help removing these pests and keeping them away.
