Carpenter Ants Love Spring

April 09, 2012 Latest Updates by Brett Johnston

Ahh springtime ... birds chirping, sun shining (finally!) and carpenter ant swarmers flying. If you are unfortunate enough to have a carpenter ant nest established inside your home, you may be witness to the annual spring emergence of winged carpenter ants flying en masse into your living space.

What happens is this - mature colonies of ants produce winged reproductive stages which overwinter inside a protected nest, then when the weather warms up in the spring the winged ants emerge, sometimes in huge numbers, to fly out and mate during flite then expand their population.  When the carpenter ants are flying, it literally means love is in the air!
