I would say about a month ago I would find a carpenter ant here and there until about 5 days ago. We had about 5 days of straight rain before that but after the rain i would find about 6-10 of them in the kitchen at night. 4 days ago I started setting up Terro ant paints. They did a great job attracting the ants. I found out the ants where coming in from the top of the kitchen door (back of house). There was a bunch of ants coming in to get the bait and bringing it back into the door. Some very big ants also. I found a trail of small ants where coming in from a tree to the front of the house underneath the step. So i put a trap there as well. When i did big ants also came from underneath the front step to the bait and going back underneath the house while some that came out went back to the tree. These ants started showing up in late spring...how ever there was ants coming out of the house and going back in to get the traps. Im gonna wait a little while longer for the bait to have full effect but whats my next steP???
