Since you've been living with these guys for 5 months, I would try it on my own before hiring a pest control company.
Here's a link to some pretty good info about ant control from the University of California:
National pest control companies will charge anywhere from $100 to around $300 to take care of your ant problem. Local pest control companies will charge anywhere from around $50 to $200. Your best bet, if you don't want to try yourself, is to call around & get local quotes.
ALPACA QUESTION!! HURRY PLEASE ANSWER!!?
Could only find the NZ one at the moment (will have another look later) but I imagine it would be similar to Australian one :D

2.2.2 The animals for export were born, raised and continuously resident in New Zealand, or were ‘part of New Zealand’s national herd’ for a minimum period of time. (See notes)
2.2.3 During the 12 months preceding the animals’ qualification for export to the USA, there has been no evidence of tuberculosis (Mycobacterium bovis), brucellosis (Brucella abortus), leptospirosis, paratuberculosis (Johne’s disease), bovine genital campylobacteriosis (vibriosis), or trichomonosis found in these animals, or other animals associated with these animals for export.
2.2.4 The premises of origin were situated in an area classified by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) of New Zealand as a tuberculosis (Tb) surveillance area. (A surveillance area excludes those areas classified by MAF as endemic areas, fringe areas, or special Tb investigation areas).
2.2.5 The premises of origin of the animals for export were designated to be free of bovine Tb for at least 2 years prior to export.
2.2.6 During the previous 5 years, there have been no reports of paratuberculosis in the animals destined for export.
2.2.7 Prior to entry into the embarkation quarantine facility, all animals for export were individually identified with tamper-proof identification. (See notes)
2.2.8 The animals for export were isolated from other animals not of an equivalent health status in a MAF-approved facility, for a period of at least 60 days immediately prior to being shipped to the USA. During this pre-embarkation period the animals have been under supervision of an official veterinarian. Dates of the pre-export isolation period to be recorded on the export certificate.
2.2.9 While in isolation, the animals for export have remained clinically free from evidence of infectious diseases.
2.2.10 Within 10 days prior to the scheduled date of export, the animals were examined for external parasites and treated for ectoparasites with a registered parasiticide.

2.2.11 Within 48 hours of the scheduled time of export, each animal was examined by an official veterinarian and found to be free of signs of contagious and infectious diseases, free of external parasites, and fit to travel.
Within the first 15 days of the 60-day pre-export isolation period, the animals were tested, with negative results, using the intradermal tuberculin test. (See notes). Date tested. The test was conducted by a testing officer specifically trained and approved under New Zealand's Pest Management Strategy for Bovine Tuberculosis to undertake testing for bovine tuberculosis in New Zealand. There has been at least 60 days between this test and any previous intradermal tuberculin test.
(Culinary Arts) Class Description, what does this mean?
This reads to me such that you would have at least equivalent to accreditation/certification.
You may be able to get a summer job working with a food preparation (health) inspector going to kitchens in restaurants and other businesses to make sure they meet the standards set by the state for having a clean environment for preparation of foods. If you are unclear about this I would recommend asking for further information even while taking the course (if not before). You will not be the only one wanting to get such information.
I think the course could help you find a source of income while you are attending college - especially during vacation months. This could also help you come to know the way inspectors think and what they expect.
