First of all, RELAX! They're only ants, it's really NBD. If it was a Big Deal, you'd be seeing HUNDREDS per day.

Ask your exterminator to do the Termidor/Phantom treatment. Your IP says you're in Florida, so there should be no problem with the weather holding up your plans.

This treatment is an indoor/outdoor treatment, Phantom on the inside, Termidor outside. Actually, I have a lot of luck with just the Termidor treatment on the outside - it's that good!

The Phantom treatment can be a little tricky anyway, if you're not used to using the combination. Not that it's "unsafe" or anything, just that experience using it makes it more effective. Both these chemicals are non-repellents, rather than what most are, repellents, and they work differently, even from each other.

Usually, this is a once-per-season treatment, but it depends on the pressure from the ant populations and also other factors.

As for YOUR own treatment, here, sit down and breathe into this paper bag for a few minutes.... I know, sometimes it ain't easy!
