Back again. I seem to have several nests around my house. The first nest I found was near the trim around my garage door where there was a gap between the trim and the ground. I bought some Maxforce Gel that also came with granules. After about a week and a half of treating with those, I am only seeing a few ants very sparingly. However, I found a very large, very alive black carpenter ant in my home today, which prompted me to do more investigating. I found several ants crawling on my wooden picket fence, using it almost as a highway. I watched one of them for a few minutes and he led me back to the nest. As I am out of the gel bait, I sprinkled granules on and around the fence. Many of the ants took the granules back to the nest right away. I watched them for at least a half an hour - some of the ants took the bait, some did not. Now I'm finding another entry point around the back side of the house near the gutter. Basically, I'm trying not to panic but it's not working. I'm finding more and more nests and it just scares me that I'll never NOT have an ant problem. Any advice or words of wisdom?
