Can ants destroy a home?

Big black carpenter ants were on the walls in one corner of our dining room. Upon examination of the scene, a contractor friend told us he’d rather have termites than carpenter ants. This was scary, as we had come to value his opinion on construction matters.

I quickly called an exterminator, who arrived at our house and sprayed the corner of the attic where he had found the ants’ nest. For a while after that we saw fewer ants. But quite a few were left, so we called for a second spraying, which was done. As before, the number of ants immediately decreased, but soon it was increasing again. I called a third time, and the exterminator kindly told us that because of how entrenched the ants were in our attic, he could not get rid of them permanently.
