Good morning. I am from the Province of Quebec in Canada. I have, since mid June notice a couple of carpenter ants in my home.... Mainly in the kitchen area and dining area.... At the beginning I saw about 20 looking for food I guess. I have called an exterminator who applied treatment around the house and trees on June 22. The product was cyfluthrine. Since then I have gone weeks without seeing any...but recently, it the past 2 weeks.. I saw maybe 5.... Could they be residual ants that could not get back outside because of the treatment... Should I be worried... .. The exterminator said that I probably had a nest in the house.. But I have looked everywhere and found no evidence of a nest... Is it normal to still be seeing a couple of ants after the treatment ??? The exterminator indetified the ants to be carpenter ants...... Anyways.. In total.. Since June.. I have maybe saw 30 to 40 ants..not more.. Mainly at the beginning.. And have gone weeks without seeing any... Any input would be appreciated. Thanks
