    ANTS, EVERYWHERE!!

    [we had some ants at the house before we bought it, we paid an exterminator. My FIL was here to look at our door that isn't working properly, he pulled the molding away to look under and HUNDREDS OF ANTS CAME CRAWLING OUT!!! ]

    Uh oh. That's not good. We have a serious ant problem at our house. They're really tricky to get rid of.

    I would invest in some boric acid. It's pet safe and they take it back to the hive.

    When I went to visit DB they were ALL over his kitchen. YUCK!

    After I cleaned his kitchen I waited 6 hours to wait for them to come back, and when I saw where they were entering from I sprayed clorox bleach where they entered, but 5 inches in each direction (around the door cracks, window cracks, random side part where the wall and counter meet). They didnt come back the 2 1/2 weeks I was down there.

    Are you 100% sure its ants?

    And I would call up a different exterminator.

    Depends on what kind of ants they are.

    Reason I asked about whether you are sure they are ants is because of the location he found them. I would think termites because of that, but I'm not sure that termites gather in the 100s like ants do.

    Depending on the type of ant. If they are carpenter ants they can cause serve damage.
