Ants in Alaska

The commonest ant in Alaska is the carpenter ant, as there are plenty of places in the state with wet, damp wood which it can chew and burrow into to build its nest. It doesn’t attack solid wood but is highly destructive to wooden furniture, walls, sub-floors, foundations, and frames showing signs of water damage.  You know you have them in your house if you notice tiny heaps of sawdust near door jambs, baseboards, or window sills.
