Hello,
My problem seems huge. I have all ready probably screwed up by putting out bait and then spraying with home defense. Yesterday morning I found 1 and upstairs and 3 on the main floor and 1 in the basement. No bid deal. I put out a terro bait trap. Hundreds of ants within a few hours. They were all over the first floor of the house. Finally we started killing the ones in the kitchen and dinette area. Overnight there were 50-100 ants found dead in the hallway. Today I have killed about 50. Everytime I look under the heater rail by my front door I see 4-6 more ants. Should we call an exterminator or should we try and find the nests. There were NO ants before yesterday that I have seen, the last ants I saw were about 3 yrs ago and that was 3-4 ants total. Please help me before I take the dogs and move out !! P.S. I live in CT and it has been really wet lately, not hot and humid.
