Hi John!

Another (hopefully one of my last) update!

On my last post about 3 weeks ago, we had a couple days with temps up near the 100s. Got around 15 winged CAs those days, then for the next 2 weeks went back to the 1-3 winged CAs a day routine.

But surprisingly, for little over a week now, we haven't seen ANY at all inside! Even on some of the more hotter days! I'm sure they're still there, I'll usually spot one slowly walking around in my backyard every couple days (though they COULD be from ANOTHER nest, but I don't think I'm THAT lucky). But for now, they're no longer coming into my home so I'll take that as progress!

On a side note, in my yard our patio and walkways are made of bricks/pavers, and I've noticed in a few spots sand type substance coming out from the crevices, and little ants going in / out. I think we had these in the home many years ago, but with a change in eating habits (no more crumbs!) they eventually left. Should I be worried that these guys will work their way inside again? Will the termidor treatment help keep them out?

As always, thank you!
