we suddenly have tiny ants coming into the house through tiny cracks near the window sill. They are quite annoying. I did seal one of the cracks but they found their way through another one. What to do???

You might try dusting the window sill with cinnamon. I understand this repels them. If that doesn't work, try using baits on the ground, directly below the window. Most commercially available baits contain boric acid which the ants take back to their nests. the colony feeds on the bait and it kills the entire colony off.

Best wishes with your project!
