Thank you so much for replying! I feel like I'm just all on my own with this now, so I appreciate your advice.

He did talk about baits. Seeing more ants makes me anxious but I may have to suck it up and put some down. The thing is I'm not quite sure where exactly they all are coming from.

I've seen them mostly in my kitchen. On the floor on the side of my fridge there are dead ones in the powder I've put down, so I'm assuming the fridge area is a focal point. Maybe the laundry area adjacent to my kitchen.

Trouble is, I've seen them walking through the living room, or one or two in the bathroom, some dead ones in my front hallway. This is why I can't be sure where exactly they are originating from. I've never seen an ant trail, just random ones walking or dying before my eyes after they touch that powder.

I can try to vacuum up all the powder. I just am not sure if I can get it all as powder is in the nooks and crannies now.

I'm going to wait for a couple weeks and see how it goes. Hopefully I'll see a decrease from what has been done. If it hangs on, I'll consider baits. I'll keep you updated.

Thank you for your advice!

Tina.
