To treat for termites and to treat for carpenter ants are two very different treatments. If you treat for carpenter ants, but you actually have termites, you will likely not accomplish much and the termites can continue their "work".
Of course, you should always hire a qualified pest inspector to fully inspect you home, but if you ever are put into the opportunity, the chart below will help you to properly identify a termite in it's winged phase (during spawning). Questions? Contact me!
