How to get rid of this?.To get rid of carpenter ants an inspection is the first and foremost step as they can cause serious damage to your home..

Carpenter ants feed on wood and that means any wooden structure can be at risk for serious damage done by carpenter ants. If left untreated the carpenter ants can multiply and become very hard to eradicate and costly too. They can have wings or may not have them, but they are large ants and should be taken seriously.

You could see swarms of carpenter ants in the warmer seasons like summer. Since many have wings you may see them flying. Because they are large ants, sometimes they are mistaken for termites. They can reach a length of up to 25.5 mm long! They can also be recognised by their narrow waists and antenna that has an elbow shape to them.
