ants after the rain #212126

Asked September 12, 2014, 1:59 PM EDT

Since the very heavy rain in the Mesa area, I have an explosion of tiny ant hills with tiny ants in them, and bunches of even smaller "bumps" of earth that seem to be the beginning of ant hills.  What's happening?  Any advice on how to control them?
