Ant activity in paver patio (pics)
I've been having a couple of ants here and there inside the house and been tracking ant activity in the back yard. I know there is probably a colony under my paver patio.
A couple of days ago i gave a liquid bait to a large number of ant. Today, i noticed that there was a huge swarm coming out to the surface for no particular reason. There was no food or anything that they were eating and just sort of moving or something. I was wondering what kind of ant activity that represent. Typically, a swarm would happen if there is food for them. Did the poison work and they're moving or just a coincidence?
Also I poured boiling water on the patio holes a couple of days ago as well, but I think the result is limited because i have polymeric sand in most of the patio joints.
If anyone has idea what i can do to get rid of them, or have them move further away from the house, let me know!
Here's what it looks like
