Avoiding Carpenter Ant Damage In Denville, NJ
Denville, New Jersey, is home to countless species of ants, but not all ant species are created equal. While most ants are merely a nuisance, the carpenter ant is one that you should take note of. Carpenter ants are more than just a nuisance pest. Although they will invade your home and contaminate food sources in your kitchen and pantry, the primary concern with carpenter ants is their ability to damage the wooden structure of your home and its wooden accessories like fences, sheds, and garages. Carpenter ants do not eat the wood that they invade like termites do, but they will tunnel through it to make galleries for nesting, increasing the tunnels each time they expand their nests.
Over time, these damages can become costly. There are a few things that you can do to help discourage carpenter ants from nesting on your property.
These prevention tips include:
- Keep your foundation free from grass, plants, and branches by leaving a barrier between your foundation and vegetation.
- Trim back branches that touch your foundation, siding, or roofline.
- Pick up branches, leaves, and other debris in your yard.
- Store firewood and other wooden materials on pallets rather than directly on the ground.
- Store trash in containers with tight-fitting lids and remove from your property on a regular basis.
- Repair or replace damaged or loose-fitting screens on doors and windows.
- Install door sweeps on all exterior doors.
- Fill all cracks, gaps, and crevices in your foundation and around utility entrances.
- Repair leaking pipes and faucets both outside and inside your home.
- Use a dehumidifier in moist areas of your home or business.
- Vacuum regularly and clean up crumbs and spills right away. Pay special attention to areas under and around large kitchen appliances.
- Store food in airtight containers or in the refrigerator instead of on counters and table tops.
- Set up a year-round pest protection service.
