Will carpenter ants eat a flag?

I just noticed what I think are carpenter ants buzzing about, they dont seem to be going for any wood, but this american flag that I think belonged to my granddad seems to have a few extra holes. Would the ants eat the flag or is it just my imagination?

carpenter ants wont go away…even after treatment!!?

we had our home treated for carpenter ants about a month ago. they said the incidence of them would taper off in a few days. since then, we see about 2-3 a day…then today, we are seeing a SWARM of about 20-30 winged ones near the window where we treated. my husband said maybe we killed the queen (this morning) because we killed a HUGE one…but we really dont know anything about it at all. what is going on? where are they coming from?? do we need another treatment?
