Carpenter Ants get in many unusual places to nest. Carpenter Ants differ from termites as they do not consume wood. They chew wood to get places to nest. What you see above is called Frass, This is from where the ants chew wood and push it out of the nest. Sometimes you will see body fragments of ants that may have died and body parts pushed out. Carpenter ants are very common in Texas. They are active all year around. Their natural nesting sites are trees. Carpenter ants are some of the largest ants in Texas

In fact, if we could write a letter to the termites telling them that we’ve left a stack of wood for them out back as long as they stay out of our homes, we would be in the letter writing business. But the fact is, sometimes species are at odds with each other, and that’s why we’re in the pest control business.
But what happens when a pest is much more than just a pest? Sometimes there’s real danger.
Termites: It’s this simple…if your home includes wooden supports, termites want to eat your home. That means that they’re at odds with your interest of living indoors and your interest of having a strong, well-supported home. At Sureguard we specialize in termite control, because just asking them to leave isn’t going to do it. You need home pest control that gets results.
Mosquitos: What’s the deadliest animal alive? Crocodiles? Lions? Nope, it’s the mosquito. Because it’s so amazing at transmitting the malaria virus, mosquitos are far and away the most dangerous animal humanity has ever encountered.
Of course, malaria isn’t very prevalent in the United States, but mosquitos are also carriers of the West Nile virus, a potentially deadly virus that has been found in 22 Texas counties.
Mice: In 1993 something started killing Native Americans in the Four Corners region of the southwest. It was the first American instance of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, a virus that kills around one-third of those infected. The hantavirus is transmitted by mice, usually deer mice. You don’t even have to see the mice in order to be infected…while it can be transmitted by a bite, it is most often through handling of mice feces or through the air as people clean an area that’s infested. Texas is fifth in the nation in terms of hantavirus cases.
