Hello,
I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is the middle of winter here. Every morning, I see at least 8 carpenter ants in my daughter's nursery. They seem to be near the window or around the trim on the ceiling. I see the occasional in the hallway or the other walls. In some instances, I see a couple of dead ones too.

We have renovated our house - have new windows (vinyl), our siding is cement board, roof was replaced, and we have spray foam insulation. So, as far as I know, there would be a small chance of rotting wood in our home.

Do you think there is a nest in our home? Or are they just coming into our house. Also, would you know why I would be seeing them only on our second floor of our house?

How can I rectify this problem?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated! All the best.

Regards,
Jasmine
