Need help ants coming from the floor vents.

I have a 2013 352qs and there are ants coming from the vents. Any help or Ideas as to where and how them might be coming in.

What vents are you referring to? Roof, walls, floor?

Ajax or something similar around anything that touches the ground. The ants won't cross it but you must reapply after a rain. I would bug bomb the interior & give it a couple of days to get them all.

I had them crawling up my fresh water hose last week on the Cape. They were the tiny 'Sugar Ants'. I sprayed a foot of the hose down with ant killer and put several traps inside on the kitchen and bathroom floor. No more ants. Next time I'll use Vasoline on a 1" section of hose.

Find the sourçe to stop the invasion, but then use Terro liquid we found to be the most effective bait.
