A dozen large ants in two years? I certainly wouldn't worry about that....

Forget the spraying you do, that's a waste of time and money. I wouldn't do anything. The window carpenter would have said something if he discovered it, you don't think he would NOT say anything about discovering (perhaps) hundreds of ants, would you?

Don't worry about it. If you do anything, have an outside treatment with Termidor, from an exterminator. And skip the biggies, go with a trusted, local independent.

But I don't think I could even advise you to do that. The amount you've seen could just wander in, Termidor treatment or not.
