ok so we found a huge nest in our garage....we are taking off the roof and there is a huge nest outside in the garage. My question is ...we are replaing all the wood that is damage and some that is not but now that we have disturbed there home will they now set up shop in our house. I mean even though we have no damage wood in the house will they try to move in now that we have disturbed there home. What can we do at this moment to protect our house short of hiring am exterminator or is that our only choice. There was probably 400 ants give or take a few. We have been good in the house the past couple days maybe only seeing a few, but now i can see where they were coming from since i never really had any real problem area just coming in from several diffrent spots.
Thank you for you help
i will say that the birds seem to be loving the little snacks they now have over by the garage
