There are few pests that are as destructive as the carpenter ant. This particular insect keeps Grapevine pest control experts busy every year, nesting in huge numbers in weak spots in a home's wooden structure.
Contrary to popular belief, carpenter ants don't actually consume wood the way termites do; they derive no nutrients from wood. However, this doesn't mean these pests aren't destructive or don't warrant immediate pest control. Grapevine and other north Texas towns are favorite stomping grounds for carpenter ants that are deft at identifying wood that is already weak from moisture or decay. They find these weak spots and nest there. The effect of a large amount of nesting is further deterioration of the structure. Left unchecked, carpenter ants can greatly accelerate these types of damage.
Experts in pest control in Grapevine and elsewhere in Tarrant County are also infinitely familiar with the pharaoh ant. This prolific pest gravitates toward sweet, fatty foods that are abundant in most homes. While pharaoh ants don't bite like fire ants or damage structural wood as carpenter ants do, they are especially difficult pests to eliminate, and is a well-known and formidable foe for Arlington, Fort Worth and Grapevine pest control customers. Extremely sensitive to their surroundings, pharaoh ants will often detect poisoning and break up into several smaller populations in an effort to evade extermination. This makes the elimination of pharaoh ants tricky for anyone who is not well-versed in this species' habits.
