Carpenter ants are social insects that use their strong mandibles to hollow out galleries in wood for nesting purposes. One of the telltale signs of this particular species of ant is the piles of sawdust found near their nests, commonly referred to as frass. They are usually black, red, brown, or combinations of red and black.
The German cockroach is the one of the most common of the Cockroach species and are commonly referred to as roaches. Adults are 1/4 to 5/8 of an inch in length, and light brown to tan in color and have two dark longitudinal stripes on the pronotal shield. Because they undergo simple metamorphosis the nymphal instars resemble the adult.
