Probably a lot of stragglers, I don't know what chems they used, or how they used them. But before I went to any extreme measures, I would get an inside/outside treatment with Phantom/Termidor. If you've read any of the posts on this board, you'll be familiar with my words.

Have that done by a local exterminator, skip the biggies or anybody with a salesman. This procedure is sometime a bit tricky, so experience doing it helps. And no, it isn't worth it for you to buy all the chemicals and do it yourself, it would cost you a fortune. I know because it costs us a fortune. Most insecticides are manufactured and developed by the drug industry, need I say more?

Have the treatment, it's usually a once per season deal and wait until this time next year to assess the situation. NBD
