As we are all hoping that winter here in Connecticut is winding down homeowners should be keeping an eye on the melting of snow on and around their house.

Snow melting and freezing again at night can expose cracks in the foundation as well as cause havocs on rooftops. But if that water makes it way into the house could also be a source for infestation for Carpenter Ants down the road.

Carpenter Ants like a high moisture content in the wood that they like to hollow out to make their nest. So if you notice water damage this spring you might want to not only contact a licensed contractor to seal up and repair any sources of water leaks, but also don’t forget to contact a licensed pest control firm to schedule a inspection for Carpenter Ants as well.
