Carpenter ants making their way into my house, help!

This answer was rated:

I have carpenter ants coming into my house around the doorways and was wondering how much an exterminator would charge for a treatment. I fortunately never had an exterminator before. The home is in a wooded community in Pennsylvania.

Typically, a pest control company will charge you $100 or more, and then want to sign you up for monthly treatments or other long-term service agreements.

This link from the University of Kentucky offers a more targeted approach to dealing with carpenter ants - finding and treating the nest.
