Restless Nights Thanks to Chewing Sounds

Carpenter ants make noise when they are burrowing through wood, often described as the sound of crinkling cellophane.

Reproduction heart icon

Rapid Reproduction

Carpenter ant queens lay 9 to 16 eggs the first year and may live up to 25 years. Meanwhile, eggs complete their lifecycle in about 6-12 weeks.

Carpenter Ant Treatment Plans That Work for You

Every home is different. Your Orkin Pro will work with you to design a unique program for your home based on the latest technology.

Thorough Investigation

Carpenter ant nests are difficult to locate on your own, and our Pros will provide a thorough investigation to help find all available nests.

Natural Carpenter Ant Insecticides

Sugary bait is placed near trails to and from the nest, where it is brought back by worker ants and distributed to the queen, larvae, and other ants.

Chemical Combinations

Our pest control Pros can combine chemical and nonchemical solutions to help ensure that workers, eggs, larvae, and the queen are eradicated.
