Once again spring is just around the corner. Nature is waking up after a long winter and insects are starting to appear more frequently in your home. This is especially true about carpenter ants. If left unchecked, they can be responsible for structural damage to your home. They weaken the structure of your home by making their home in the wooden joists, beams, rafters, and inside walls. It is a good idea to have your home inspected and treated (if necessary) against a carpenter ant infestation. Many other insects are also becoming active and can be prevented from becoming a problem. Proper treatment beginning in spring can lead to a relatively pest-free summer.
