Carpenter ants can be very harmful to a home or building. When Carpenter ants find a home inside the wood of your own home, they can be capable of producing a lot of damage. This is especially the case if you leave the areas untreated. (Professional pest control companies, such as Antworks in Portland OR, can help you solve your ant infestation easily. Click here to contact them today.) There are several signs that you may have a Carpenter ant infestation in your Portland OR home. The most obvious sign is when you visually see Carpenter ants building or foraging food in a long trail. This long trail typically stretches from the food source and straight to their ant nest. When you follow this ant trail, you may be lead to an opening. If the infestation has been going on for a while, there may be piles of wood shavings found beneath the wooden items. There can also be noises coming from within the ceiling, walls or areas near the nest. Sometimes, what looks like a termite infestation may actually be a Carpenter Ant Infestation. Since termites eat wood, when you see the piles of wood shavings, you may actually think you have a termite infestation. Ants do not gain any nutritional value from wood. They merely damage the wood in order to create their nesting area. Antworks Pest Control Company in Portland OR can help you determine if you have an ant infestation and provide solutions for the pest control you need. Contact them today for more information.
My job can get pretty mundane sometimes. You do this sort of thing long enough and you get to see just about everything. I have rescued computers, printers, phones, water heaters, all kinds of electronics from these ants. I have even cleared the inside (the guts) of a few hot tubs. This is the 1st time I have found a nest of these odorous house ants in the actual tub part.

In September 2011, the CDC released a Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report of interest to anyone with bed bugs, or that fears bed bugs:
Since not everyone thinks reading a 10-page technical CDC report is a fun dinnertime activity, here is a summary. The CDC analyzed data from what’s called the SENSOR system -– state public health folks and poison control offices report certain categories of injuries and occupational hazards to a national database.
