We have lived in our house for about 5 years now. We have always seen carpenter ants outside of our home, but never inside. This year we are seeing carpenter ants in basement and several first floor rooms (have seen them coming out of the first floor vents). We put out several Terro baits, which seemed to help in one room, however the ants are consistently seen in the basement. We probably see about 10-20 a day. We're trying not to panic about this but within the past week, we have seen/killed about 6-8 large winged (probably queen?) ants walking across the basement floor. Can't figure out where they are coming from. What do you suggest as a next step? I have read a lot of posts to this message board and I'm thinking you may say to spray Termidor outside, but what do we do indoors? Thanks
