We see Carpenter ant damage often in CT. If you know what to look for, you can sometimes treat it before it leads to more damage and more ants/termites. During a noise / mice inspection in Old Saybrook yesterday, I noticed this discolored wood at the bottom of a door
Just touching it with my finger I saw it was so soft I could easily have poked right into it at least an inch. This is a solid wood door.
Having the home professionally treated for ants can prevent hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of structural damage. If you see flying ants inside your home, that is a sure sign that the nest is also inside your home somewhere.
Keeping an eye out for these little signs and acting quickly when they appear can keep the problem from getting bad. If you see ants or this type of wood damage in or around your home, feel free to give me a call. We can stop the activity safely and quickly.
