Hi there!
I noticed sawdust on the door sill and on the top of the door handle hardware. I looked up to see where it could be coming from. I also noticed the day before one big ant and didn't catch it. I vacuumed the sawdust up a few times now. It was about 1/2 a handful each time. I noticed when I vacuumed the fasteners on the door that one ant was at the top of the door (a tiny guy) and another tiny guy at the bottom of the sill in the sawdust. I killed them both. I wiped the counter top down with pure white vinegar and also the door ledge bottom and top.
My friend said that I should call an exterminator. I've asked my husband to take the wood frame off from the top of the door as the sawdust is coming from the top we assume since it landed on the door handle hardware as well as the bottom ledge of the door.
What are your suggestions?
We live on a ravine and there is a cedar wood deck coming off of this door to the backyard.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions or assistance you can give me.
I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Best regards
Deborah
