Carpet Ants Live in Downsprout?

It's still better than living in an apartment.

That depends on what kind of apartment. I used to live in an apartment in New York City that is quite nice. But I also lived in an apartment elsewhere that had very thin wall and floor. In general, I find that I can get a much better living environment in a house than in an apartment for the same amount of money. Living in a house is definitely better for me because I have kids despite the fact that the house is old (not one of those charming old houses) and was not built right.

Right on. Take care of structural damage, fascia before slapping that new roof on. Be prepared to replace some decking if it has been leaking for quite a while. I'll wager the ants leave when the conditions are made unfavorable for them.

I'd worry about fixing the roof; the ants will go.

I hear you. This is true especially for me because I have kids. That is the reason why I only ask pest control people to spray outdoor near the house and not indoor, and I don't use insecticides on my lawn either.

I expect to replace the entire roof, not just the roofing. The roof has existing problem that I have already known.

Hope everything will go well for me.
