So today I found a winged black (with a bit of red) ant by a baseboard in my home located in rice mn. It was a little under a 1/2 inch long. This is the second ant I've found this winter the other being black and possibly smaller. Ive never had anything aside from the tiny brown/red ants during the summer time come n.I lookeed (generically) around the area (baseboard by main entrance) and found no moisture nore cracks. I did find in my basement (unfinished so I can see bottom of sub floor) a hole about 2"wide with saw dust but it appeared to be decently thick like a drill bit. No real "dustings" similar to pictures online. I cant seem to find any moisture leaks but I do live in a house from the 70s. I have not witnessed any more than the two ants this winter but since its a cold season (aren't ants usually dormant? ) I am a little worried. I am of humble means so any dyi advice would be much appreciated. If I should need to contact an ecexterminator I
will but it shall be tough. Any advice would be much appreciated. I would prefer answer by email if at all possible.
