it is wierd ever since we got rid of the nest in the garage and replaced wood we have seen about 8 ants total in three days. We also found some rotten wood that it looked liked they used as a boarder around the house as a flower bed. We pulled all that wood up and the stuff they used to stop weeds in the flower bed around house. We got as much dirt as we could up and put in gravel because i never thought having that much dirt by our foundation was a good idea regardless of ants. In the wood by the foundation there seemed to be a few smaller nests of around 50 or so but like i said we have seen even less than ants than usual. Yesterday we were out most of the day but were home at night went to bed at 11pm and didnt see an ant all day.
Thank you for your advice and i think i will wait on any treatments until i see this getting worse....fingers crossed. Thank you again.
