A nest of carpenter ants can do serious damage to a home. These small pests often set up shop behind baseboards and bathtubs and keen listeners may even hear them as they munch away. If an infestation goes untreated, these tiny bugs may quickly turn into a nightmare. Here are some signs of carpenter ants to help you identify whether or not you have a problem:
- Trails of workers around the kitchen, pantry, and other areas where food is stored
- Sawdust-like material that workers kick out of their nests during excavation
- Listen for ant sounds in the quiet of the night. When the ants are chewing, or simply moving around in the nest, they make a sound like rustling cellophane.
