Well, Ryan, you did all the right things! Leave that insulation off, all it does is give the ants a good place to live where they can be happy.

Is there another nest? Could be, but hold on before you do anything rash. The remaining ants you're seeing will wander around and disappear after a few days. DON'T spray anything (outside or inside) just now. Hold on for that few days, up to a week.

If it hasn't let up by then, yes, a perimeter spray could be in order. In which case it would be to the OUTSIDE, and done with Termidor. Don't settle for anything else.

---John
