Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants (Camponotus spp.) are a common type of ant found in Colorado and many other regions. They are known for their large size and ability to excavate wood to create their nests. Unlike termites, carpenter ants do not eat wood; instead, they tunnel through it to create galleries for nesting. These ants are often attracted to moist or decaying wood.

Biology and Behavior

Carpenter ants have a distinctive biology and behavior:

  1. Nesting: Carpenter ants establish their nests in various types of wood, such as trees, logs, stumps, and even man-made structures like houses. They prefer wood that has been softened by moisture.

  2. Colony Structure: Carpenter ant colonies consist of different castes, including workers, soldiers, and reproductive ants. Workers are responsible for foraging, nest maintenance, and caring for the brood. Soldiers have larger mandibles and defend the nest. Reproductive ants include winged males and females, which participate in mating flights to establish new colonies.

  3. Foraging: Carpenter ants forage for food, primarily seeking sources of protein and sugar. They are known to enter homes in search of crumbs, pet food, and other food sources. Their foraging trails may extend over significant distances.

  4. Nocturnal Activity: Carpenter ants are often more active during the night, making them harder to detect during the daytime.

  5. Damage: While carpenter ants do not eat wood, their nesting behavior can still cause significant structural damage over time. Their galleries weaken the wood, potentially leading to structural issues if left untreated.


Quality Pest Solutions specializes in providing effective treatment solutions for carpenter ant infestations. Carpenter ants are a common nuisance and can cause significant structural damage if left untreated. The team at Quality Pest Solutions is trained and experienced in identifying the signs of carpenter ant infestations, locating their nests, and implementing targeted treatments to eliminate the problem.

The treatment process typically involves the following steps:

  1. Inspection: Pest control professionals will thoroughly inspect your property to identify the extent of the infestation, locate the nests, and determine the points of entry.

  2. Identification: Carpenter ants are large ants that can vary in size and color. Identifying the specific species of carpenter ant is important for choosing the right treatment approach.

  3. Nest Location: Locating the main nests is crucial, as carpenter ants establish satellite nests in addition to their primary nest. Removing all nests is essential to effectively eliminate the infestation.

  4. Treatment Options: Quality Pest Solutions will offer various treatment options based on the severity of the infestation and the specific needs of your property. Common treatment methods include:

    • Insecticides: Applying targeted insecticides to nests, trails, and entry points can help eliminate carpenter ants. These insecticides are designed to be effective against ants while being safe for humans and pets.

    • Dusts and Baits: Dusts can be used to treat hard-to-reach areas, and bait stations can be strategically placed to attract ants and deliver poison back to the nests.

    • Residual Sprays: These sprays create a barrier that carpenter ants must cross, helping to control their movement and population.

  5. Preventive Measures: In addition to treating the infestation, Quality Pest Solutions may recommend preventive measures to avoid future carpenter ant problems. This could include sealing entry points, reducing moisture sources, and removing potential nesting sites.

  6. Follow-Up Inspections: After the initial treatment, Quality Pest Solutions may schedule follow-up inspections to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment and address any remaining issues.

It's important to note that carpenter ant infestations can vary in complexity, and DIY solutions may not always be effective. Professional pest control services like Quality Pest Solutions have the expertise and resources to properly address carpenter ant infestations and protect your property from further damage.

Other Ant Species in Colorado

Colorado is home to various ant species beyond carpenter ants. Some common ant species found in the region include:

  1. Pavement Ants: These small, brownish ants are known for nesting under pavement and sidewalks. They are scavengers and often forage for food in and around buildings.

  2. Odorous House Ants: These ants emit a distinct odor when crushed, often described as a “rotten coconut” smell. They are attracted to sweet foods and can be found indoors and outdoors.

  3. Red Imported Fire Ants: While not as common in Colorado as in warmer regions, fire ants can still be found in some areas. They are known for their aggressive behavior and painful stings.

  4. Thatching Ants: Thatching ants, also known as thatch ants, are larger ants that can build their nests in lawns and create distinctive mounds.
