Carpenter ants make their presence felt in wooded areas where there is a lot of vegetation. These areas are natural habitats for them. But that doesn’t mean that your home can’t be a target for them.

The carpenter ants prefer to live inside wood sources such as firewood, furniture, and structural parts of your house. These are the places where they build their colony. A colony of carpenter ants can have more than 10,000 worker ants. Such an alarming number of pests indicate severe property damage. That’s why you shouldn’t waste time calling for Chambers Pest Solutions’ ant pest control in Perth service.
Tiny opening on the exterior surface of wood in your home indicate the presence of carpenter ants. They enter wood through these holes and build smooth tunnels through the wood to travel.
