Hi...cedar bungalow with tongue & groove "cathedral" ceiling, 3 relatively small skylites which leak sometimes if there's a major downpour...but not always. Beneath our asphalt roofing is plywood sheathing, then foam insulation on top of the tongue & groove cedar. Over several years we've seen "droppings" in various locations & on the odd occasion a number of ants together inside. This year though, at one of our skylites, even though it's still winter here in Ontario, over the last few days we've seen maybe 20-30 "winged reproductives" each day, emerging from the interior trim around the skylite. We suck them up each time we see them (usually mid to late afternoon)if we're home. We think they're nesting in our roof...does that sound likely? If so, would commercial spraying help? If not, what do you suggest?
(PS We've REALLY appreciated the knowledgeable commentary from your site...thank you!!!)
