We have a 50 year old house and our roof was redone 10 years ago and found the roof structure was damaged by ants. We saw them a lot back then but we didn’t see any inside again until just two weeks ago this spring. I found a nest close to our house and poured boiling water on it but I’ve still seen a few since then. We’re hoping to deal with this before it grows into another roof repair.
My door lock keeps freezing to the point I can’t open it, any idea why this would happen?
