If the striped ones are queens, we have an incredible situation here because I have already killed hundreds of them-some of them 1/2" long! I will absolutely contact an exterminator tomorrow. Is there someone you can recommend in the Chicagoland area? Is it possible that we have actually hit a nest and that is causing an increase in activity? Both Terro and Timbor claim to be slow acting. How slow is slow? Do you hear about this frequently with the mansard style roof, or is it more likely due to the rotten deck and leaky roof/basement?
Is it possible we have several satellite nests in our house? Sorry to bombard you with so many questions, but prior to finding your webpage, everything we read was identical to other info we found, and we were unable to find any real answers. Thank you, thank you , thank you for your time!
