Thank you for a quick response . I will contact the deck builder but as of now I can't see visible problem with moisture though.
Carpenter saying it normal to get ants every spring which is true it just in my case I have carpenter ants and a lot that only coming from screened porch which is on the second floor 8 feet up so there is good space for ants crawl which I know they don't mind :)
Since you mentioned Termidor and I actually was looking into that product last week but was a little afraid to order on amazon since it mentions that you have to wear protective clothes to apply that's why I called several pest companies that informed me that it only needs to be applied by professional . Could you tell if I let them to spray around the house and let say later on we have rain will it wash and slide and be dangerous for children to walk on and play. Especially front house driveway leading to garage will be sprayed as well.
I know it's say safe after dry at least that's what they say but wouldn't rain spread more area.how toxic is Termidor?
And what's your opinion of max force gel that so far took care of curennt problem of carpenter ants .
Thanks
