Ants everywhere

Our shamrock has been invaded by tiny ants. It seems we have been parking it near a rotting landscaping tie. Can we use a commercial bug bomb to obliterate them? I think they may have invaded the walls or ceiling. Any suggestions or ideas would help tons.

Don't know about your ants, but I do know that spreading dry, used coffee grounds on fire ants, they either leave or die. VOE.

Been there, done that. Mistletoe State Park in GA. Ants infested the unit. Couldn't figure out where they were coming from since I had sprayed everything that either touched the ground or was connected to the RV. Turns out, they were falling out of the overhead trees and going after the water [condensation] coming from my AC. They even got into our bed!!!
I sprayed [liquid insecticide in gallon jug] all over the roof, slider and inside every cabinet in the unit. It took several applications to get rid of them all. What a nightmare!!
Foggers do nothing against ants according to the park ranger that dealt with it hundreds of times. They did a brisk business of one gallon insecticide sales. Must have had 20 sprayers in the camp store. That should have been a signal to me when I checked in, but I missed it. Paid for that mistake big time!!!
GOOD LUCK!!

I use bait I get at HD. I set several out and they stream to get it. Take it back to where ever they go and before long they have vacated the premises Or died a horrible agonizing death..
