RE: ants


I attended a little seminar at our local trial gardens.  One pest
specialist said that carpenter ants are usually foraging when they come in.
He advised making sure that no branches touched your roof or walls of your
house so they have less avenue for entrance.  When there is a lot of rain,
it washes down the pollen that they use so they go foraging for other
things.  One way to tell if they are in your house is to look for bits of
dead insects piled up in an area.  They are very good housekeepers and keep
nests very clean, removing all remainders from eating, etc. and piling them
outside their nest.
