When dealing with a carpenter ant infestation, the problem usually falls into two categories based on size. It can be very difficult or really simple to eradicate. The simple version consists of an outside infestation that can be taken care of in a matter of a day or two. On the other hand, you have an indoor infestation that is more than overwhelming. Swarmers (also known as winged carpenter ants), along with workers, come up from every direction of the house. Normally, when this is apparent, after eradication of these pests, lumbers/timbers will have to be replaced.
Whether you have a simple or difficult carpenter ant infestation on your hands, it is important to initiate a control and management method before it progresses to something more serious. First and foremost, you must inspect your home. How carpenter ants getting into your house? Where is the source of the problem? Once these questions are answered, you can then apply an accurate control method. For smaller size infestations, carpenter ant baits and sprays are your best bet to get rid of your pest problem. However, if the infestation is larger or the source/nest is along the inner walls of your home, you will have to go a little further before apply treatment. Drilling might be an option to get the immediate source of the problem. If you are able to reach the source without using drills or other means of dismantling, it is suggested to do so.
