Ants! They're invading Eastern Washington and may be heading toward your home. Pest control companies are getting hundreds of calls for help because of an influx of carpenter ants.
The problem this year is the longer winter and spring. A cool start to spring followed by warm weather has led to the ant infestation. When it heats up like this all of a sudden more of these ants hatch and try to find places to burrow in and set up shop for a year or two.
