I just bought a new house less than 2 years ago. I seasonally have issues with ants but use some boric acid to get rid of them and dont think twice about. Unfortunatley, i am having ongoing issues with ants beside my front door,in my kitchen next to my trash can which is right in front of a wall and mainly under my dishwasher.

I actually see a hole in the wood flooring and wood surrounding my dishwasher with sawdust remnants or frass left behind. I do not see the ants inside of the dishwasher at all but it looks like the ants have made a home in the wood under my dishwasher. Do you think they are in my walls? The evidence looks like it is pointing in that direction which scares me. The hole is getting bigger and i think i need to call an exterminator. Do you think it will be an involved and expensive task? What should i do? I live in the Pacific Northwest (Oregon)
