Others, build nests around the sidewalk or driveway, or under the landscape timber, or firewood. Which ever ant is invading your home is needs to be treated accordlingly. We start outdoors looking for trailing ants, move or dig around to see if this is where they may be coming from. We use mostly chemicals to control ants, rarely mechanical barriers are enough to stop them. Baits can and are used indoors for ant control and non-repellant chemicals may be applied to aid in their demise.
