Where do carpenter ants go in the winter?

Carpenter ants do not hibernate in the winter, but they will slow down their activity level as the weather gets colder. Ants are most active in the spring and summer when they are searching for food and water to sustain their nests. If you see carpenter ants on your property in the winter, it’s a good indication that there is an infestation.

During the winter months, carpenter ants may reduce their activity levels and movement as their food and water sources become more limited. They may move deeper into their nests or into indoor locations, such as wall voids, attics, or crawl spaces to stay warm and survive the cold temperatures. These indoor locations can provide a source of warmth and humidity, allowing the ants to remain active even during the winter months. However, they will typically remain in their nests and may not venture out as frequently to forage for food, which can make it more difficult to detect an infestation during this time. If you suspect a carpenter ant infestation in your home, it’s important to contact a pest control professional who can inspect your property and recommend an appropriate treatment plan to eliminate the ants and prevent future infestations.
