Future Queen Ant

5613   I have attached a pic of an ant (there are more than just this one). Found inside home, early March, Valley, Nova Scotia.  Would really appreciate your help in identifying this as we are concerned that it could be Carpenter ants.  Thank you. Valerie
This does look like a queen carpenter ant (Camponotus sp.). See http://tinyurl.com/zbfx3m8 elsewhere on the pestcontrolcanada site for some control recommendations. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
