That depends on what kind of apartment. I used to live in an apartment
in New York City that is quite nice. But I also lived in an apartment
elsewhere that had very thin wall and floor. In general, I find that I
can get a much better living environment in a house than in an
apartment for the same amount of money. Living in a house is
definitely better for me because I have kids despite the fact that the
house is old (not one of those charming old houses) and was not built
Poison doesn't keep much of anything "away" - insecticides generally
kill what is there. Destroying ants in the yard is pointless, and can
be harmfull. Most bugs have positive effects, too.
Right on. Take care of structural damage, fascia before slapping that
new roof on. Be prepared to replace some decking if it has been leaking
for quite a while. I'll wager the ants leave when the conditions are
made unfavorable for them.
I'd worry about fixing the roof; the ants will go.
I hear you. This is true especially for me because I have kids. That
is the reason why I only ask pest control people to spray outdoor near
the house and not indoor, and I don't use insecticides on my lawn
I expect to replace the entire roof, not just the roofing. The roof
has existing problem that I have already known.
