Dave, I doubt that "leaky faucets" would be the trigger for a CA invasion, not unless it was leaking behind a wall or something, where you can't detect it. But you should probably get them fixed anyway. A plumber friend of mine says those dribbling faucets are often a sign that people tend to turn off faucets too tight. He says that too right can make the rubber O rings squash out and leak quicker, to just turn them off until the water stops.

Your ants, if they are CAs, might just be a seasonal thing. Give it a few weeks and forget trying to bait or spray them. If they're seasonal, they'll end on their own.
