It's me from northern upstate NY. End of April had TErmidor done on outside of our log home. One shot deal but very through. When we went up a month later there were a LOT of dead ants in the first floor area. I mean lots but they were dead so this is good. All closet doors are open and no dead ants there. One upstairs window is left open so air can circulate. Well just went up for a quick trip this past weekend...a month later than last trip and AGAIN there were LOTS and LOTS of dead ants. Yes I did vacuum them all up on our last trip!! Hey this Termidor is working but where in the world are all these ants coming from? I would have thought that if there were any in the house they would all be dead by now.
Can't follow any because we did not see any that were moving...RIP I say. Our house is in the woods and the soil surrounding it is sand with lots of ant hills. Think that there are nests outdoors and these are all foragers?? Our neighbor said that even folk who never had ants are seeing them now with all the rain BUT I have to say that these are way more than I would expect for rain. So what do you think? Where could they be coming from and am I ever going to go up there and not have to face dead ants? Thanks.
