There are a few different types of carpenter ants, including both winged and wingless queens. These ants are a little more than half an inch long, and are responsible for laying anywhere from 15 to 20 eggs at a time. There are also male ants, which may or may not have wings, and smaller worker ants. Unfortunately for homeowners, carpenter ant colonies usually have at least several hundred ants, if not thousands. The most common places to find carpenter ant colonies include moist wood and soil. While these ants do not eat wood like termites, they can cause damage to furniture and other aspects of your home.
