I found a good guy!
After calling one more time I found a guy who made sure that I really had what I thought I had--they aren't Carpenter Ants...they are plain old harvester ants. Boy do I feel sheepish. Anyway, he doesn't like to kill them if possible (sweep/vacuum and toss them out the door) unless they are causing lots of problems.

He didn't want my money. He didn't want a contract. And he did offer to come out and make doubly sure that it was harvester ants--no charge. (I am comfortable after my description to him and the behavior he described that they are harvester ants) YAY!!!

Thanks for the help though, and I will recommend the site (and you!) to friends and family.

I just had to get the right person on the phone!(and I was the first person that the exterminator had heard of that had managed to get stung by a harvester ant--and gotten welts)

And this is why people like me are not allowed to play with chemicals (or fire)--wrong diagnosis = wrong cure.

Thanks again!
