Carpenter ants love moisture. And they love moist wood. A leak discovered under the toilet in a Hamilton NJ home by Rick Pettit an Eastern Pest Control inspector determined that the wax seal inside the toilet rim deteriorated and allowed water to leak into the adjacent sub flooring and wall board area.
The area was excavated, dried and treated with a crack and crevice liquid application. There was a substantial colony living in the wall. Carpenter ants can do substantial damage to framing members with the help of a water source that is leaking.
