Carpenter Ants

Carpenter Ants

Carpenter Ants can be occasional invaders or could be nesting and causing damage inside your house.  Howard’s will inspect and determine if  your house has a colony of carpenter ants.  A habitat that works for these ants does not work for the health of your home or business.  High moisture content is almost always a condition that is conducive to their attraction.

Treatment for carpenter ants will include exterior perimeter treatment, spot treatment indoors in areas where there is a high level of moisture.  Baits can be very effective and may be used inside or out.

Howard’s will make recommendations for lowering moisture in susceptible areas.  Recommendations may include the installations of vapor barriers, crawl space vents, high grade dehumidifiers, and rain water gutter protection.  See our additional services and products pages for more information.
