I have a new house just finished in December. During construction of last year I noticed ants and reported it to my supervisor who said that I had nothing to worry about and that Carpenter ants are not in Maine. I have 5 acres in an all wooden lot. We found a nest in the header of the basement door then and removed it sprayed raid and dusted the basement and Hoped the problem was gone. This spring I saw them again. This time on the other end of the house. I sprayed under the baseboards basement dusted and with granuals around the perimeter and borders of my lawn. They went away for a while and recently in the past month they have returned with vigor in every part of my house specially noticeable in my basement. I see at least 200 dead and crawling however I just fear they are infested in a while some where again. I have cut some trees and discovered nearly all of my land has numerous logs and trees infected and I have been excivating and pulling out the stumps that are totally infected and dousing and burning with gasoline..any idea? What am I doing wrong? Im new to this first time home owner just my son and I any suggestions??
