Hi again, John!

Quick question for you!

I recall reading that carpenter ants are dormant in the winter, but my question is - will a few days of warmer than usual weather get them out and about again?

Today I found a dead one inside by a door that goes out to the backyard, and am trying to figure out if I still might have an indoor nest or if it's just a straggler out and about due to the weather. Last few days were pretty warm in NJ, mid 50's to even low 60's!

TY,
Penny!
