Hi,
I was doing a final walk through on a home before putting in a contract and looking closer at the replaced window in the master, which had been replaced for water damage and leakage to the first floor. Underneath the newly installed window I found several dead black, winged, medium ants and several dead non winged of the same sort. Carpenter ants I'm sure, I've had experiences with them in another location. Red Flags, Red Flags!!! Should I walk away from the home altogether or inquire more about a pest inspection and damage inspection inside the wall? This home is located in the Northwestern Chicagoland area. Your opinion is so much appreciated!!
