You probably don't need the "bait products," not for what you describe. And don't put dust "around the open areas," that's too much. Just where the pipes come through. Really, 9 ants is nothing.

Next time you're at the garden store, pick up some granular insecticide (look for ants on the label) and sprinkle some around your trailer, especially UNDER the trailer, sort of like how you put salt and pepper on your eggs. You can do it with your hands, just wash them after, of course.

You probably don't even need to do that, by the time you get to the store they will probably go away anyway. It's just a weather thing. When you really have a problem, you'll probably see hundreds.
