How do I know if the ants I see are carpenter ants?

Carpenter ants are large, black ants that often nest in wood structures, causing damage to homes and buildings. They are distinguishable by their evenly-segmented antennae and large mandibles. They can be found both inside and outside of buildings and are active year-round.

Are regular ants destructive?

Regular ants, also known as sugar ants, pavement ants, or odorous house ants, are generally considered to be a nuisance pest rather than a destructive one. They tend to forage for food inside buildings and can contaminate food, but they do not cause structural damage like carpenter ants do. However, some species such as red fire ants can be aggressive and can sting humans, which can be dangerous for people who are allergic to their venom.

How quickly can a pest company get rid of them?

The speed at which a pest control company can get rid of ants depends on several factors such as the severity of the infestation, the type of ants, and the method of treatment used. In general, a professional pest control company should be able to provide a comprehensive inspection and treatment plan within a few days of being contacted. If the infestation is small, the ants can be eliminated within a single treatment. However, for larger infestations or for more persistent ant species, multiple treatments may be necessary to fully eliminate the ants and prevent them from returning.
