Should I treat outside for ants when spring comes?

I live in Ohio and it is winter now about 19 degrees. My husband found ants after removing the carpet in the family room on one of the edges. He vacuumed them everyday and more appear every day. We know now that we need to treat them. What products do we need to use?


Do you know if they are carpenter ants?  If so, then you should purchase our Carpenter Ant Kit which comes with bait to place in the house for the ants to take back to wherever they are nesting.  This is important because if you do not take out the nest the colony will continue to reproduce and continue to be a problem.
