Good morning everyone!

So. I've been building a house extension/greenhouse. In the process of digging the poles for the corner, i encountered maassive ammounts of carpenter ants running up my body and biting. I'm ou get the picture. So the old house is well attackes.
Anyone got plans on how to deal with those pesky creatures? In a permaculture way?

Thanks Mike.

Well, I just learned from local civil laws that I can't build anything within 10m of the property line.
No more greenhouse. I guess I'll use this structure to grow vines..
