Thank you so much for all of your time and your informative website. Late last night my husband was observing the ants and looking for nests and he found one! It was between the fiberglass installation and the bond board. Because it is a log home we have 3 bond boards and it appears that the CAs are getting in between the bond board. There were about 50 live ants in the nest. Given the number of ants that we were finding(about 250 over the weekend, and then 100 - 150 yesterday) could this have all been from the one nest? The ants seem scatter and not isolated to the location in the basement where the nest was found.
Again thank you for your time and input.
