    Tiny black ant invasion! Exterminator recommendations?

    Can anyone recommend an exterminator? I'm being invaded by those tiny black ants. I've treated in and around the entire exterior of the house multiple times. Time to call someone in. Recommendations (Nassau County) appreciated!

    I've had ants in the past but never so bad that I felt I had to call an exterminator. What did you treat with outside? Try Amdro Ant Block. Get it at HD or Lowes.

    A couple years ago, I was getting ants in the house in the Spring. I put down a ring around the whole house. The very next day, the ants were gone. They returned in the Fall and then again the following Spring. Did the same thing again and got the same results. Next day, GONE!! It must have taken several applications but I think I finally killed the nest. I haven't seen a single ant in the house this year.

    Inside, I've used Terro. I think it's basically boric acid and corn syrup. Results have varied.

      Termidor sc. I fought those tiny mother fuckers for three years. Guaranteed there is one or more nests in your yard. It's under something that doesn't move a lot. Bricks. Pavers. Wood pile. I used to walk around with a gallon of gas ( I know I know, but it's the only thing that works to kill the nest and all the eggs, until I found termidor sc). Only thing that worked for me. Problem is that it's not legal in NY. Gotta have it shipped somewhere else. And then picked up. Or something like that.

          Woke up to those little bastards the other morning.
          We have a contract with Arrow Exterminating who are based in Lynbrook. What sucks is they were here on the 5th for the termite bates!
          There was a trail of them crossing the driveway it looked like the LIE at rush hour. The pantry walls were black with them.
          They came and sprayed the perimeter of the house and inside. The inside ones disappeared right away. The ones outside were still around for a day.
          The stuff they used outside gets on them and they bring it back to the nest and it helps kill it off. The next day they all disappeared, vengeance!
          Oh btw the Arrow guy told me there were 3 different nests making it into the house not just the one I saw

                Bait traps + spray Raid Ant Killer on door thresholds (inside and out).

                  I've used retro Terro and it works great. Just let them all come out and feast on it. A day or two ( sometimes more ) and they're all gone. They seem to come out in spring and fall.

                            I had an bad ant infestation once.
                            The key is to get the colony.
                            The Terro ant bait was so cheap i didn't think it would work.
                            But it did.
                            Took about 2 weeks.
                            The key is that it needs to be kept fresh and put in the path of the ants.
                            Problem if you have pets or small kids.

                            This is the stuff i used.
                            I put more out than they said, figured th more ants that get it, the better.
                            I put it on pieces 3 x 5 cards and changed them everyday.

                            You should try to find out where they come in and after they are dead, seal it and then use diazon or similiar granules around the entire perimeter of your house.

                              This is the exact combo I used to tackle the larger carpenter ants 2 weeks ago. I believed they had a nest in a nearby oak tree. I also put plenty of bait sound the tree. That, along with spraying all around the door sills and entrances, and around the tree. Seems they disappeared in a few days.
