Hi,

I am finding and killing many ants daily, usually up to 30 or so. I am finding them in every room in our house including the basement. About 2 months ago, we had started to see these ants more and more on our kitchen counter. They were coming from under the counter where the dish washer is. I had placed homemade boric acid bait on the counter and watched trails coming out of the counter, to the bait and back under the counter. That action went on for about 4-5 hours. We noticed a huge decrease in activity after that, but now i don't see them coming from the same spot, I am not really seeing where the are coming from at all, but i am seeing them on the kitchen floor, basement, bathroom, living room, couch, bedroom ceiling and just random places all over. Some are really big and some are smaller. they have a rounded thorax and one node. Please give me your thoughts. If I try the boric acid bait , they won't go near it. Out of ideas, other than calling an exterminator. I have a 2 yr old and a baby on the way, need to get this taken care of. Thank you!
