Often, when we see large ants at night, it is carpenter ants foraging, for food and or water.  It is not uncommon to find them in your attics or plants located on the outside of your home.  Carpenter ants often will nest in hibiscus since hibiscus have a lot of mites on the underside of their leaves that they are feeding off as well as palm trees which provide a great natural habitat for carpenter ants.  Knowing where to locate their nest is key to being able to treat the perimeter of the home and inside of the home when necessary
