What attracts carpenter ants in a home?

Question: What attracts carpenter ants in a home?

Answer: Carpenter ants are attracted to moist wood. Examples of what attracts is wood that remains moist from water leaks in roofs, moist wall voids, wood in contact with the ground, tree limbs that touch the roof or siding of a house, presence of dead or unhealthy trees, firewood stacked close to the house or stacked directly on the ground, rotting stumps or logs near the house or cracks and gaps in the home’s foundation that allow ants to enter into a home and foraging for a food source.
