The most common ants in the bay area are Argentine ants (Linepithema humile) and Carpenter ants (Camponotus spp.).

Argentine Ants

Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants are larger than argentine ants. These ants are more destructive than argentine ants because they usually nest in wood or above ground cavities, including attics and wall voids. You may see frass or tiny wood shavings mixed in with dead insects that the ants have eaten. On the exterior ants like to nest in old tree stumps. We can eliminate carpenter ants from your home.
