Why do ants keep returning to one location?

I am using your Complete Ant Kit. After treatment (three days), the ants are gone, and there has not been any activity for two to three weeks. They returned back one day in large amounts. This is the fourth time. Three other locations in house took one treatment and never returned.


Ant baits will get rid of the ant colony that is currently in the area, but they will not prevent new ant colonies from moving in. We recommend treating around the outside of your home with a residual insecticide such Talstar P to help eliminate new ant colonies as they try to move into the old ant colonies territory.
