We had a minor CA infestation some years back; we were one-time treated and taken care of -- and this was 3-4 years ago, and haven't had any problems since, so I hope this isn't a sign of things to come...

...but I just saw a HUGE (non-winged) carpenter ant on my couch a few minutes ago...this thing was absolutely enormous! I don't recall ever seeing any CAs this size before. How big can workers/drones get? It couldn't have been a queen...right? That wouldn't make sense to me, her roaming about, right?

Love this site!
