Argentine ants are an Exotic species or not native to this country. . They are one of the hardest Ants to control. They more than likely one huge colony under the house. You need a Pesticide that will go through the food chain. Baits will work but Argentine ants can be very picky about baits. Drax Liquid or Terro advance would be my first choices. Argentine Ants can be a long term process to control. You might want to hire a Professional Pest control company. Good Luck
