I thought this thread was going to be about "Amish" Inspectors!

Can't help with the insects, but the one pic reminds me of ants.

Yes, but... pic 2 is not ants. Looks like those fishing bait thingys (can't recall the name at the moment).

Mealworms, that's it!

Termites will have mud tubes. In Illinois you need to be a licensed pest control technician to identify.
