Thanks for getting back to me! I see those critters and boy do I freak out!
I'm checking for leaks now. The toilet that was installed doesn't fit snug against the wall. Whoever put it in left a gap so we put a piece of styrofoam to brace it. Might have to replace it completely.
Weird thing is that last night and this morning, no ants at all. I put down Raid ant buttons and Terro baits yesterday and one ant headed towards the Raid button then took off. I'll keep watch today and tonight.
It's raining right now, but when it stops, should I open up the frame around the french doors where they're going in? Then vacuum them if they're right there?
What if I open it up and I don't see the nest?
Should I plug up the outside access points?
Sorry for so many questions! I'm so relieved to get reliable answers!
