Ants LOVE ground cover. Matter of fact, I pulled some ground cover (English ivy) out from around a fence next to the office and suddenly noticed them all over my hands and arms. I was pulling them off me for an hour.

You can try using a spray on the ground where the ground cover was. A granular insecticide might even work better.

Best would be a perimeter spray using Termidor, but that means an exterminator and a charge. For something like that I would normally charge about $100-$125 - other exterminators might charge more - some might charge less. If you have a REGULAR exterminator, he would probably charge less. For my regular customers I wouldn't charge any more than our regular price. (There is an advantage in having a regular exterminator....)
