Re: Carpenter Ant Damage To Wall Stud
Depends on the situation, something that we cannot determine from a post on a forum.
I am inclined to agree with DJ about replacing the stud. Do you "have" to, probably not, however, you don't want any eggs or larvae left behind to hatch and reinfest the area. You've already got the wall opened up, it is cheaper and easier to just replace the stud, if for no other reason than peace of mind, than to close it all up and find a reinfestation occur.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
