Not sure about the carpentry work, if you still have the name of the builder, you could ask him to stop by and make sure all is ok. That's up to you.

As far as the ants are concerned, the ants themselves cause little damage, it's the WATER that causes all the damage.

Frankly, I would get your exterminator to use Termidor around the outside of your house, that'll take care of the ants. CAs are a little finicky about what they eat, what worked BEFORE, might not work now.

Termidor always works - probably for the entire season.

If you DON'T have an exterminator, get a local guy and skip the biggies. Get one that doesn't have salesmen!

Let me know how it all works out or get back if you have any problems.
