I get like that, when i see a spider i think if theres one in the house there has to millions lurking around.. I know its hard and you are freaked out, but maybe you could just check the room you are sleeping in to ease your mind and then do a clean tomorrow..

Though it's not completely true, ant invasion is popularly associated with poor housecleaning, so, given that having a clean house is really important to you, it's no wonder you're a little freaked out. If this is important to you, it's legitimate, and deserves your attention. You are not stupid.

But don't feel bad about yourself by any means, because it's not true that ants only come into homes that aren't totally clean. Ants are drawn into homes primarily because the climate inside your house is more comfortable and more regular than the climate outside. It doesn't have anything to do with whether you did a good enough job cleaning. Even the most spotless home offers ants opportunities, and they will take them. So this doesn't reflect badly on you at all.

Have you called a pest control service, or are you going to try to get to the bottom of it yourself?

Since you've tracked them back to where they're getting into the house, look around and make sure there aren't any other spots they could be getting in. Seal carefully around the doors, baseboards and windows. Vinegar, Vaseline or chili sauce like Tabasco, put liberally around windowsills and baseboards, will help keep them out, too. Good luck. :)
