Hi what a great informative site.
I noticed a few CA in my kitchen, 1 or 2 a day for about a week and after watching and searching I narrowed the pdoblsm area down to a location around the patio door. After removing the aluminum siding I found an outside nest in water damaged wood above the door. I sprayed the ants and surrounding area with ortho home defense(didn't read about the vacuum until now) and fixed all the damaged wood and the flashing causing the leak but now I still find 1 or 2 near the door every few days and I have found 2 in the upstairs shower stall which is right above the patio door and its been over 2 weeks since I found the nest. Is this normal, can there be straglers after 2 weeks? Also, I did panic and sprayed the whole outside perimeter with Bayer CA foundation spray so after reading your suggestions about Termidor, can I still use it or did I contaiminate the perimeter with the Bayer? Thanks for any help.
