In reply to: Ants where they never were before posted by Steffie on 19:15:15 3/4/2015 from 188.8.131.52:
I almost want to say maybe they are coming from the attic but never had them up there either and I doubt we have a leak - had the roof shoveled off twice and no sign on ceilings or walls of leakage. I, myself, can not get up there and hubby will be out of commission for months, not weeks. As far as help is concerned - natta.
Also, I think I know enough about ants to know that the one or two I may see over the course of a few days that they are scouts leaving a scent trail for others to follow. So far none in the kitchen thank goodness.
Humidity is running 35% to 45% now but my house does run humid in the late spring/summer/early fall but I keep a dehumidifier going (if either of us can empty or clean the bucket this year) and the central A/C located in the attic going. Last couple of years we only have had the basement dehumidifier on.
Problem is, after I (hopefully) get hubby on his feet again I may need major surgery myself, depending on any change in my June/July MRI results so I need to nip the ants in the bud.
