*Learn where carpenter ants like to hang out*. Carpenter ants can and will
establish a nest inside and outside of any type of structure. You can
locate in some cases satellite or parent colonies outside a structure,
these will be located in tree stumps, landscape timbers, wood piles or
moist damp wood. You can locate trails in the early morning or early
evening when the carpenter ants are foraging, locate the trails back and
forth from parent colony and structure. Typically the interior locations of
the carpenter ants will be near a moisture source kitchen, or bath areas.
Look for an area that maybe gets more moisture from rain runoff then other
areas of the structure.
