leak in attic

Leaks in the attic are an invitation for Carpenter Ants

On a recent inspection of an attic from a customer complaining about carpenter ants I discovered this unique solution to a roof leak. However, it did not keep the Carpenter ants from nesting in the soffits.

The carpenter ants were foraging all over the home. When we looked closer at the area where the leak was we discovered that there was damage due to moisture at the decking and eves due to a leak at the gutters.

When we opened the area a large carpenter ant colony was discovered. We treated the area, made the repairs and put the customer under a warranty.
