What do carpenter ants do to a hive? I went out to my hive the other night and big red carpenter ants were going in and out. I opened the hive today and the comb was destroyed. No honey or brood was left. The comb looked like it had been chewed into small bits. Lots of dead and dying bees. The poor queen couldn't find any drawn comb to lay in.
Did the carpenter ants do this?
