Hello, I purchased a pan abode home in the interior of British Columbia last year. I am now finding out that I have a problem with carpenter ants. They are dropping from the ceiling. The sellers did not disclose this to us. I have a tar and gravel roof and have no way to get into the ceiling to spray. I have called out 2 different exterminators to spray and I still keep seeing the ants. Do I need to remove the roof? I have found one place of entry from the outside - a hole in the exterio


You may have to take ceiling down or remove the roof. If there are carpenter ants there is wet rotten wood somewhere. They will not stick around if they do not have rotten wood to eat. You may want to talk with the home inspector.
