Update: The population has declined little by little. I'm only seeing 1-2 dead ones (in the entire basement) over a period of days now. It's at the point where I'm wondering what my next steps should be. The yellow foam sealant (the stuff from a can) was either eaten away inside-out by the ants or was not properly applied to begin with; that sealant is just a shell in places, and the ants were using it for shelter -- though I can't say for certain they were nesting there. Am I safe to fill that back in now? Also, do I use a residual ant-killer-type spray in the area to discourage further activity in the coming weeks? I intend the leave the insulation out and the vapor barrier exposed -- just to keep an eye on things.
