Mother nature has “gifted” us with a wide variety of insect species. Some of them have a very distinguished look and you just can’t mistake them for anything else. However, there are types of bugs that look so similar that there is no chance of figuring out what you are faced with. This is the case with bed bugs.
The Carpenter ant, or Componotus spp if we have to call it by its scientific name, is a fairly big species of ants that are known to terrorise Australian homeowners.
