Carpenter Ants are the Most Common Infestation in Waukesha

We are often called to exterminate carpenter ants in Waukesha. Carpenter ants prefer moist wood, which is found in older Waukesha homes.

Carpenter ants are challenging to eliminate without proper expertise, as killing scouts alone will not solve the problem. Identifying carpenter ants is tricky, but they usually have dark bodies, bent antennae and grow up to 5/8” long. While they typically nest in trees, during warmer months, they infiltrate buildings, often targeting wooden structures like porches, windows and door frames. Call immediately if you notice an infestation in late winter or early spring, as this suggests an indoor infestation. Sightings in late spring or summer usually indicate outdoor nests.

Signs Your Waukesha Property Has an Ant Infestation

How can you tell if your Waukesha home or business has an ant problem? Ants marching in lines, swarming around food sources and gathering near moisture are indications. Ants often appear in the kitchen, bathroom or other areas as they forage for food.

Ant droppings (small black specks) near nesting sites indicate your property is infested. Carpenter ants create sawdust-like material when excavating wood. Seeing winged ants emerge means a colony is mature and reproducing. If you observe trails of ants, they have established pathways from the nest to food - a clear sign it's time to call Ehlers Pest Management for ant removal in Waukesha.

5 Signs It’s Time To Call

  • Ants marching in lines or swarming food sources
