Get Rid of Wood Damaging Insects

Several different insects attack wood when they are either in the larval stage or as adults. They can do tremendous damage to wood furniture, floors, beams, and other structures. Their boring weakens wood making it possible for structural failures.

Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants may be large, black ants or as small as one-quarter inch and reddish brown or two-toned. They do not eat wood but instead construct their nests in wood. Finding the source of carpenter ants is often difficult. Professional pest management is recommended for carpenter ant control.
