What Are Carpenter Ants?
Carpenter ants are large black ants that can measure up to half an inch long. They get their name because of their tendency to create tunnels in wood when making nests. This can cause structural damage if left untreated for too long, as they will tunnel through any wooden structure they come across, including walls, doors, furniture, and more.
The Lifecycle of a Carpenter Ant
Carpenter ant colonies start small but can quickly become much larger if not treated correctly. A colony is usually established by just one queen ant who will lay eggs to create the initial population of worker ants. The worker ants then take on different roles—some build new tunnels while others search for food or take care of larvae. As the colony grows in size, more queens will be created and the process repeats itself until the colony reaches its peak size. A mature colony can contain hundreds of thousands of individual insects!
