Hi John - I have posted before about a problem with ants in my window sill in the kitchen and sink area. It seems to have escalated as before in the past they would disappear after a while. Now they keep coming back, not a ton of them, but a dozen or so at a time. Then we noticed on our enclosed deck, at one of those windows on the sill was a party of ants one morning, about 15 or 20. The deck is the same side of the house that the kitchen is on, about 30 feet away from the kitchen window roughly. I had Fidelity Exterminating treat for a mild case of termites a few years back with Termidor which helped with the occasional ant problem, but that now seems to not be helping. In the past you recommended a perimeter treatment of Termidor, but Fidelity Exterminating who I still have out to inspect yearly for the termites is reluctant to do that. Any ideas? One concern I have is that I have two dogs and that side of the house with the ant problem is where the yard is that they are in regularly. Since I'm concerned about the dogs is it best to go with a pro instead of using Terro bait traps or ant buttons? Thanks so much for your help!
