Hmmmmm. I can tell you need some GOOD exterminators up there.... They all seem to be stuck in the Dark Ages.
If the ants are truly inside walls, they will probably be active year 'round, happens a lot. If they are, then you'll see them in the winter too.
"Tree root colony?" Do you mean a colony of ants in a tree? The Termidor would wipe them out. Otherwise, it's up to the exterminator as to how to do this.
It sounds like your "uncomfortable guy" was uncomfortable because he is infused with his 'Big Company' propaganda about tying the customer to long term (often unnecessary) contracts. Some guys just can't get away from this.
Like I said. I think you need the Termidor treatment - it can end your problem at minimum cost and maximum safety. And I just can't believe there is NO ONE near you that isn't familiar with the treatment. Damn shame. But I do know that exterminators can get stuck in the past and locked into a money habit, either out of necessity or ignorance - or both.
