If you don’t want carpenter ants in your Beverly home, you’ve got to take action to protect your home as soon as possible. During the summer, carpenter ants are highly active, and they can quickly spread throughout the wood of a structure. And that spells nothing less than disaster.

What Carpenter Ants Do

Carpenter ants are highly industrious insects that build nests at record speed. They foray far and wide to gather food to feed their populations, and even create satellite nests close to their food sources. Their queens can live up to 15 years and produce literally thousands of offspring.

All of this sounds like a nature show—but when your home’s the location they’ve chosen for their nests and your kitchen is where they look for food, you’ve got a real problem. They can chomp their way through wooden support structures, windowsills, doors and door jams, beams and furniture. They’ll set up routes right through your home to make their way to the kitchen where any food they can reach is a target. In short, an infestation can happen quickly and be very difficult to get rid of. And the damage to your property can be extensive, resulting in thousands of dollars of repairs.

Unless you call Richie the Bug Man, that is!
