Signs of Ants in Vancouver WA

Other than physically seeing a trail of ants in your home, below are some other signs of ants.

  • A colony of ants: if you spot a colony of ants outside of your home, this could be a problem. Ants travel long distances for food.
  • Unusual sounds in your walls: ants will invade walls and other voids in your home. Carpenter ants are particularly noisy when excavating. If you hear rustling noises within your walls, especially at night, you might have carpenter ants.
  • Wood shavings: as carpenter ants excavate wood for their nests, they’ll leave behind wood shavings. If you notice unexplained sawdust in areas, you may have a carpenter ant infestation.

Are Ant Infestations Dangerous?
