To an experienced carpenter, or even an exterminator, it should be pretty obvious. Water stains, the ejecta from their colonies, other signs of leakage, imperfect or missing flashing, all kinds of things.

After you open the inside, you may have to open the outside.

Let me reiterate: You need to FIX the problem of why you have the ants. You could pump a thousand pounds of chems in there and if you DON'T fix the problem, they'll come back - no matter what you use.

You need to get with a local carpenter, one that's GOOD (and honest) and will work with you on this. That guy that used to be in pest control might be a place to start, Talk to him. If he's honest, he'll tell you what I'm telling you. Those guys are the 1 percenters...

As I said, put your money into fixing the problem - not into exterminators. If you need an exterminator, he comes in LAST.
