Thank you for your reply, John!
Yes, I will be calling a plumber/carpenter to come out asap. I want to clear this problem up. The exterminator told me you wants to use as few chemicals as possible in taking care of this problem--I think I am the one who can't stand the ants. I feel like I can't have anyone come over to visit because I would be so embarrassed if they saw an ant in the half-bath or have fall on them from the half-bath ceiling fan! Or if they were sitting in the family room and an ant walked by! Ugh! I would be very upset if this happened. Anyway, over the weekend the I've killed about 10-11 ants per day. all of them in the family room closest to the half-bath, in or just outside the half-bath, and in the master bath. I will talk to the exterminator about using Phantom since it's on his list of products he uses. As far as Termidor, can that be used outside at this time of year? We had more snow yesterday, although today it's going to be warming up to close to 40. My exterminator said he would spray the outside perimeter of the house but not until Spring.

I will let you know what happens. Again, thank you so very much!
--MJ
