This afternoon I was sitting at the computer, could hear the background noise of the air conditioner when I realized the AC was not on. It's coming from the bottom of a window sill about half the length, sound kinda like rice krispies in milk. I got a putty knife and lifted up small aluminum strip a bit, saw some antenna sticking out. Lifted it a little more and two curious ants came out to confirm the culprits of the noise. Walked outside with a flashlight just to see if there might be a trail of ants somewhere but nothing. I'm guessing they are living within the walls. Couldn't hear anything in the basement. Will listen in adjacent rooms later this morning when wife and kids are gone. Cant wait to bring up the shop vac, pry it up some more to see whats going on in there. Not sure what I'll do next, but I'll just take it one step at a time, get a better understanding and go from there.
