So, we have carpenter ants. Big, ugly biting ones - as in they bite even when I kill them first. Does that make them zombie carpenter ants?
I live in northern Ontario and it's just starting to warm up here.
We called around today to talk to several exterminators. They all said the same thing - these ants can seriously damage your foundation, build nests in between walls, etc.
We don't have wood heat, and only recently started opening windows. I've seen about a dozen ants in the last seventy-two hours.
I have a six year old and a one year old, and was informed we'd have to be out of the house for twenty-four hours post spray.
The cost is $400 but comes with a one year guarantee.
Any BTDT advice, stories, etc? I'm nervous about chemical spraying with kids, but if one of these ants bites my toddler I'm going to be very upset.
