Ants are always a bit of a nuisance but this year it it seems like they are especially bad around my place. they seem to be all over including around the doorways inside the house. Not sure exactly what type but they aren't ghost ants or carpenter ants. Seem to be the type you always see under flowerpots in the yard.

This year we had a bunch of ground disruption as built a detached garage and redid a bunch of hardscape and am hoping the ant-vasion is just them trying to settle back in.

anyway, wanted to ask the experts...I'm a gardening hack.

Thanks.

Ants are a constant struggle. When it rains a lot they seek higher ground.

I had an invasion this year also!!. Both the "sugar" ants in the house (never had them before) and some species of larger sized fire ants in the yard.

Terro liquid has helped with the indoor ants and finally the "bait" that they feed to the Queen has seem to help with the fire ants. (The pour and water killer seemed to only kill some and then they would move.
