Last Saturday my two sons and I were grilling outdide in the afternoon. We noticed many winged ants ( I am sure they were Carpenter Ants) on the west side of the house. I couldn't tell if they were coming in or out, but I guess out since some didn't have wings. They looked to be mostly around the old basement walkout iron doors (old house)and around the steps. I sprayed the area, inspected the basement, cleaned out the debris around the walkout steps (from the previous owner, I am relatively new to the house)including old wet wood and ceiling tile, sprayed the perimeter of the house, caulked windows, trimmed trees in yard and dug out old stump. I have only seen a couple in the past few days, I am hoping they are just foragers. What else do I need to do? Thanks, Will
