Missy, I just read your post. And I want to say I agree with you 100%.... My husband is always wanting to spray w/ an OTC bug spray. Never works. I've been telling him they get immune to the chemicals and you end up with super-bugs! Now, he just lets me call the pest control co. when ants, and wasps etc... get too bad.
Thanks so much for finally proving me right!!!

Dear Ms. Cone, Thank you for writing. Carpenter ants can certainly be problematic. Most species of carpenter ants establish their nests in decayed wood and later expand into sound wood so it's wise to have these pests treated as soon as an infestation is detected! A pest professional can assist you with an inspection, confirmation of the pest and treatment. If carpenter ants are discovered, treatment will often involve a perimeter treatment of a non-repellent product highly effective in eliminating the ant problem. In addition, if there are any branches or shrubbery in contact with the building, they must be trimmed back.

Missy, I saw your article in the Fairfax Co.Times today and looked for you on-line. Great to see you are the bug lady now! I've actually been very concerned about the amount of ticks in our neighborhood already. Hope you are doing well! Blessings - Jenna (former employee at CFA!)
