  • Carpenter ants: These are large ants that range from black to reddish-brown in color. They can grow up to half an inch long and have a segmented waist. They are called carpenter ants because they tunnel through wood to create their nests. They can cause structural damage to your home or business if left untreated. They are also attracted to moist and decaying wood, so they may indicate a water leak or rot problem.
