When the Ants Come Marching In

In Michigan, carpenter and odorous house ants seek water-soaked wood below pipes, drains, dishwashers, showers, and leaky roof shingles for nesting sites. Have a washing machine with a leak? Better check the floor underneath. Was there an ice dam over the winter that caused a leaking mess in a wall? Hire a contractor to expose the soaked wood completely, replace it, and fix the reason for the ice dam.
