Well, you're right, caulking those areas is a labor-intensive job and it just won't work. The wood expands and shrinks, according to local climate conditions, so the caulk would soon fail in some place. It would be a never-ending job, for sure. Besides, you then seal off an area you might need to access in the future, for some kind of treatment.

The foamboard is always suspicious, the ants (any kind) just LOVE that stuff! Most of the time treatments with dusts, Termidor and/or Phantom are your best bet and they're most often successful when done by a pro.

You have an excellent exterminator out there, dead straight honest, I think the best on any of the islands. Give her a call, talk to her about your problem. Tell her "John from United" sent you.
