Hi John! I've read through your website and it is great! I have lived in my new home for a year now, and see the average, occasional insect. We have railroad ties in are yard that are rotted through and last summer, I noticed A LOT of ants when I hit one of the ties with my mower. They were likely placed there when the house was built in 1960. I want to remove the ties so that I can do new landscaping, but I'm assuming there are carpenter ants that will be disappointed that they are gone. Do I need to take any precautions or just remove them and let the ants find a new habitat elsewhere? I'm worried that they will travel inside, but after reading through your site - that doesn't seem like it will be their first choice.

FYI - I live in Columbus and did find a honest exterminator that seems to feel as you do on these things.
