Area that ants are coming in?


Hello All

I noticed when walking around my house perimeter and inspecting the concrete base, that there are two problems

1. There are cracks on each side on the house (see pictures)
2. With one of the cracks, it seems the ants are coming in and out. I have placed one trap there right now, and ton more are coming out. (see first picture and left side)

I am going to leave traps there for a few days, however, how i do i permanently fix this, seal the crack and get rid of the ants "inside". Would it be safe to assume there are a ton more in the concrete? or that my concrete base is bad.

Sorry about the pictures, but the pictures needs to be rotated 90 degrees to the left.

You need to back up and take another picture.
That second picture looks like a non supporting wall is holding up the foundation.
I would have used Terro Paste, not a trap.
