Good hunt. Kudos for not panicking, which almost everyone does...

Physical barrier? lol. I wish. "Show me a 50 foot wall, I'll show you a 51 foot ladder." ~Gov Jan Brewer

These little guys can wander and forage over a hundred yards! So you'd need a desert between you and them.

Best defense is to ignore foragers, they're harmless and really no danger, and concentrate on eliminating potential harborages - sometimes hard to do, as they can survive with colonies of under a hundred individuals. You can have them and never know about them until you inadvertantly uncover them! Good story.
