No problem, I can see "huge." The smaller picture tells the story, however. See the little "spike" on the thorax? Typical of CAs. And EVERY place has "moisture" - they don't need much. The fridge is one place.
All ants have a swarming stage, and they are picky eaters, which can make baiting difficult.
Truthfully, it really doesn't sound like you have that much of a problem... Ants inside? That's just about all the calls we're getting right now - ANTS! Of all types, in all kinds of places. Besides, this is "ant season," like I said, LOTS of calls here.
If you did anything, and I think you should wait it out for awhile, is to have the outside treated with Termidor. It solves a lot of the inside problems as well.
But your "problem" might just be the season more than a real problem. The ant pucks are good for small infestations, but get the ones where the active ingredient is Fipronil - they work the best. Now RELAX and quit worrying!
And thanks for the compliment!
