Anyways, I found the ant nest! When my gf and I leased the house, the back shed came along with it and at the time we didn't think much of it than to just use it for storage. We didn't think to see if it had any structural damage or what was really inside it is what I mean. The previous owners had left lots of spare plywood behind a set of old metal shelves, some leftover DIY project long-since forgotten. When I went to check it out just in case, it turns out that there are LOADS of carpenter ants in the back area and the plywood boards (which are stacked upon one another) are completely hollowed through.
The shed also has a huge hole in the sheet metal in one of the back corners. Apparently the ants got to us from our neighbor's place (across from our backyards) and they've got a tree that looks to be completely infested with carpenter ants as well. Turns out that they themselves had no idea and were completely sympathetic since the ants were basically coming from their property and into our's. They said that they have had carpenter ant issues in the past but just used some basic insecticide and after the ants stopped appearing, thought nothing of it.
I'm waiting for that advion since I already bought it but @neight, I'll look into mixing up a solution depending on how effective the advion is. At this stage, though, my neighbors said that they would hire a good exterminator and pay for the service on my home/shed so we'll see how this progresses.
I'll update later on this week!
