Or as my dad calls them, piss ants. I was finding them at night sporadically around my house on the upper level. Never in my kitchen or anywhere else. I finally figured out they were in my daughters room (upper level) in her closet. I looked up and there was a spider web with some dead ants in it which was strange to me. I had my husband put cellophane over the entry to the attic/craw space area and tape it off. Sure enough they were coming from the attic. I had my exterminator come out and spray all the outdoor soffits and downspouts, he dusted the attic area around the light fixtures. A few days later, still live ants in my house. Nothing for 4 days and it rained a bunch and now in seeing them in the cellophane and crawling up a door. Any ideas? Should I call the exterminator back out? Could they be crawling up downspouts? We trimmed all the trees away from our house so we are at a loss as to how they are getting in and only on the upper level.
