Discovering carpenter ants in your home can be alarming. These ants chew the wooden structures to form tunnels for their nests. They get their name from these construction skills. This common ant species is found throughout Australia.
The size of carpenter ants ranges from 1/2 inch to 5/8 inch. Their colour varies from black to dark brown to brownish orange. Sporting six legs and two antennae, they have an oval shape and segmented body structure. Also, their worker ants can be found in different sizes due to their polymorphic nature.
Carpenter ants have a diverse appetite. They can feed on plants, honeydew, insects, meats, sweets, and grease. These worker ants can forage up to 300 feet from their nest during daylight hours. They continue working from dawn to dusk.
A carpenter’s ant infestation can be identified by the presence of big, wingless black ants on your property. While finding them inside doesn’t necessarily mean their nest is there too. The nest may be elsewhere, and the ants simply forage for food and water. These ants enjoy sugar, fat, and meats.
