Carpenter Ants

Color: The common western species of carpenter ants are dull black in color with reddish legs and golden hairs covering their abdomens. Other species are black, a combination of red and black, or completely red or brown.

Characteristics: Carpenter ants don’t eat wood like termites.  Instead they push the bits of sawdust called frass out of the tunnels they create.

Size: Worker carpenter ants vary in size, ranging from 1/8 of an inch to 1/2 an inch long. The queen carpenter ant can be up to 5/8 of an inch long.

Potentially Dangerous: To property, not people.
