Shouldn't be too hard to fix that... My suggestion would be to do a perimeter spray with Termidor. Your exterminator can do that, cost arond $200 or so, depending on the exterminator. If you don't have one, you'll probably do better by using a local guy, skip the biggies, they usually have to pay a salesman, making the cost decidedly more.

You could also do it yourself, for a bit cheaper. The chemical cost, for the least amount of Termidor, will be about $80 or so. You'll need a sprayer (get a one gallon sprayer) at Wal-Mart or something, cost of about $15-$20 and don't use it for anything else.

The Termidor treatment is a once-per-season thing, best applied when you start seeing the CAs in the spring.

If you DIY, get back to me for any details you need to know, or check with other posts here to get a feel of what and how you need to do this.

And don't worry about the ants or the treatment!
