Recently we’ve noticed that we’re getting a lot of ants in one room of our home, upon inspection I found them coming through three slots in the window frame, I also went outside and sprayed the window, came back inside and saw water inside on the sill, can anyone explain if this is normal? All windows have these slots in them but I didn’t think they’d leak? If it’s normal can I seal these? House is less than 6 months old.

They are drainage slots/weap holes mate. It's for any water that makes it's way into the sill to drain out from.
Depending on the window manufacturer there might be gaskets that can be fitted in there that allow water out and not back in.

If the ants are coming from outside for a quick fix you can draw a line around the window with chalk, a box of chalk cost less than one dollar from officeworks.
Ants will not cross the chalk line. You can google "chalk line ants" you will see a lot of results.

Just thinking out loud here but being 600 high means that you wouldn't need council approval but probably best to talk to your neighbour because whatever you put there…
