Called two pest control companies after finding termite sawdust on my carport from wood that has previous damage. One company said that the sawdust was more than likely from white-footed ants displacing the material by crawling through channels created by previous termites which were treated long ago. He said I didn't need to treat for termites, but that I do for the ants.
The other said there is no way the sawdust came from ants displacing it and that the sawdust was evidence of a current infestation, which would obviously need to be treated.
Neither guy actually inspected the wood.
I'm inclined to think that there are termites since every few years this same area seems to get them in it, but I also wonder if it's possible for ants to displace old material from the pre-existing damage.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
