The most common large, black ant found in New Jersey is a carpenter ant.  These wood-destroying pests can be found in huge colonies and prey on homes with water-damaged wood and stacked firewood.  While they don't consume wood like termites, they dig through it at a fast rate in search for insect and plant food.  If left untreated, carpenter ants can cause significant damage to house structures, costing thousands of dollars.  Contact us today to learn about ant control!
