Ant Shield at Sill Plate
I live in Ottawa, Ontario where termites do not live (at least yet) but we do have carpenter ants. I know of a few custom homes which have installed something like this but 99% of the home in the area do nothing.
Is it worth installed some type of termite/carpenter ant shield at the sill plate or am I just over thinking things?
