    Hi everyone

    I recently noticed that when I pull up the earth near the deck, I see ants. Are ants going to do anything harm to the house? Should I get rid of them?

    I haven't seen ants in the house.

    If I should be concerned, what are some effective ways to get rid of the ants?

    Thanks a lot!

    Paul

    Not sure where you live. In some areas, carpenter ants are very destructive. In other areas, ants are a nuisance but not destructive.

    You can call a pest control company for a quick review on the phone. They might hard sell you if you ask them to visit the house. Be considerate of their time . . .
