VINEGAR? hahaha. Must have been a vinegar salesman.... This happens a lot. A dust, maybe Drione, puffed into the inner reaches of the dishwasher usually works pretty good. It's not a difficult procedure, control can usually be accomplished in one visit, it's not necessary to have a "contract."
Sorry, but I don't have a specific name for you in Pittsburgh, my advice would be to seek out a trusted, local independent, someone that doesn't use "salesmen" and doesn't require a contract to perform his duties, so that generally leaves out the biggies, they want you in the game.
The ants survive by nesting in the insulation and other parts of the dishwaher. As far as home remedies are concerned, forget about it. Get the local good guy to do it for you.
P.S. I used to know a half dozen out where you are, but most of them have retired, and I don't know if the surviving company is as reliable. The good guys are still out there, you have to LOOK for them. Don't be charmed by how BIG they are, or how big their ad is in the YPages. You can't even tell on the Internet anymore, their Web sites are done professionally, with little input from the guy that really matters.
Finally, pardon my rant.
