Have carpenter ants shown up in your Massachusetts home or business? Safer Nature Pest Control of Amesbury, Massachusetts provides fast and reliable carpenter ant removal services across the area. Carpenter ants are one of the most destructive ant species in Massachusetts. They can cause costly damage to the structure of your property.

Carpenter ants typically build their nests in damp and dark climates such as at the foundation of buildings or in tree trunks. Overtime carpenter ants extend their nests by tunneling through wood, often times without showing any sign of damage. For this very reason carpenter ants are known as silent destroyers.

However, it is important to note that unlike termites, carpenter ants do not eat wood. It has no nutritional value to them. Carpenter ant workers forage outdoors for food such as honeydew (secreted by aphids), juices from ripe fruit, and other insects.
