Carpenter ants belong to a particular genus of ant that are well known for their ability to damage wooden structures.The red and black carpenter ant, (Camponotus herculeanus) along with the black carpenter ant (Camponotus pennsylvanicus), are two of the most common types found in Canada. In addition to being a nuisance in homes in their search for food, carpenter ants can also cause structural damage to woodwork as they tunnel through timbers.
