I just had a section of my basement finished into an extra bedroom. Just about the time that they finished, I started to notice a few extra ants in the upstairs rooms, but spring just got here, so I did not put a second thought into it. But now, every morning, we are noticing 50-100 dead or dying ants in the basment. this has been going on for weeks now. just recently, I tried some of this carpenter ant dust in the vacinity underneath where the bathtub is. (as a sidenote, i have seen sawdust in this area before and just swept it up not giving any real thought to where it came from... but that was over a year ago and just started having this problem.) Now after the dusting, the numbers of them have probably gone up 50%, but they are still either dead or dying. But now they are in the main floor of the house, still either dead or dying. I also sprayed the external of the house with a Raid branded barrier product recently, but it was after we noticed all of the ants in the first place
