Carpenter ants are well known for causing damage to wooden structures. When looking for food insides homes, they can become disruptive. Carpenter ants eat plants and animal food. Insects, other small invertebrates as well as honeydew produced by aphids and other insects are their main sources of food. Protein and sweet food in and around houses will attract worker ants searching for food.
Carpenter ants build their nests inside any wood surface. They dig galleries, but they do not eat the wood. They reject it outside their nest as wood chips which look like sawdust.
Carpenter ants create large colonies made up of hundreds of worker ants, many reproducing males and females with one or more queens. Quite often, some ants leave their nest and migrate to a nearby structure to create a smaller satellite nest. Some specialists claim that this would explain why carpenter ants invade our homes.
