Carpenter Ants: Small But Destructive
Carpenter ants are large ants that build their nests inside wood. They will nest anywhere in your home and cause serious damage inside your walls, under your floors, and even behind and inside cabinets. They may be small, but they can cause big problems when left untreated. It is important to have an expert carpenter ant inspection if you notice carpenter ants near or inside your home.
Carpenter Ant Control Tips
Here are some ways that you can help prevent re-infestation or infestation in the first place:
- Remove piles of wood, branches and any other dead wood from near your home’s foundation.
- Remove stumps and trim dead branches from trees in your yard.
- Remove excess moisture from areas in and around your home. Seal leaks and pipes to help prevent entry.
- Try to prevent water accumulation near or around the foundation.
Step 1: Carpenter Ant Inspection
Our trained technician will inspect your home carefully and identify the extent of a carpenter ant infestation. They will inspect common places where carpenter ants like to nest such as areas with soft wood like windows, chimneys, sinks, and doorframes. They will specifically look for moisture, which can be an attractor for both carpenter ants and termites. If carpenter ants are found, the technician will help to locate the colony.
Step 2: Carpenter Ant Control
After the inspection, a control plan will be created and implemented. Our technician will treat any infected areas and give suggestions to reduce high moisture areas in your home.
Step 3: Monitoring
It is important to continue to monitor for carpenter ants throughout the year to ensure that they will not return. Our technician can help to guide you in creating a maintenance plan which includes continued monitoring by a Mantis technician.

I have been using their service for a little over a year and it’s been great. They’re very professional and the technician’s do a thorough job.
Used Mantis for a little over a year now, and have always had the same service individual (Jake) for each visit who is always super helpful, professional, and quick to assist with out of band service requests and/or questions.
Mantis is great quality at a reasonable prices. I've used them for about a year and my insect issues are non-existent. Scheduling is a breeze and they come when they say they will come. Never been an issue having a technician come out between regular service intervals as well. Derek was super polite, professional and punctual. In addition to him taking care of the wasps nests, he even applied a granular barrier in the event rain washed out the spray application. Overall, a highly satisfied customer!
Jason did a fantastic job. Called to say he was able to come earlier in the day if it worked out for us. He explained everything that he was doing and the expected outcome of the service. Professional and easy to talk with.
