I have been having a carpenter any problem in my room for about the past 2 years. When it first started happening, I noticed dead blank ants on both of my windowsills in my room. My dad just vacuumed them up and sprayed the windows. At one point I came home and over a hundred ants covered my window and wall space. After that event, we would just see them dead on the windowsills. It's worse in the Texas summers and would occur all year but not as bad in fall or winter. My parents just vacuum them up because I only use the room when I come home from college.
Now they are back and keep coming every day. I now see some with wings. It's hard for me to find out where they come from but it's always around both windows. I just put ant dust on the window sills but they still keep coming. This year there is also a lot of wood shavings with the dead ants. And I also noticed that during the day a line of ants on the outside of the house climb up to my windows on the second story.
Something needs to be done but my dad won't do much for it and it's gotten to the point where I can't sleep in my room anymore. Any information that could help me would be very very appreciated.
