Hi John - We had some termites in the basement back in 2009 and had a Termidor treatment done. It was a small infestation. We had had some ants here and there in the family room/kitchen along the baseboard at times, but no big deal. I noticed after that Termidor treatment I didn't see them. We have a yearly inspection done now for the termites. In the last several weeks I've noticed a few ants here and there around my kitchen window and in the kitchen sink. It seems to have escalated a little bit more and more to the point that I'm feeling like it might get out of hand. Today I noticed a bunch of them in my sink and then on my stove. The kitchen window is a garden type window that protrudes outside and was installed new about 7 years ago. It's also on a second floor so not easy to get to outside. We have had a lot of rain in the last month or so. We live north of Baltimore, MD. I actually wondered if the Termidor shouldn't take care of that particular problem but not really sure. I've read some of the posts you've had and see that it's recommended to take apart the window sill though I'm not sure that's the problem area. Not sure that we want to tamper with it given the construction of the window in general. Any suggestions for the ants? Thanks very much for any information. Your site is awesome.
