Hey John,

Your Gourmet worked very well and I hardly saw any ant hills on the patio at all. Now since it is getting colder I still have baits out and they are sucking it up BUT they are coming in the basement it seems from the ledge on top. I sprayed them with 25% vinegar and 75% water to burn their backsides and have them tell queenie it is not a nice place to be. However, I still am seeing them. I called an extermnator who said they are not making Termidor any more and they use Phantom. They also said it doesn't make sense to spray outside now - to wait until spring -- that pavement ants do not nest in the house and will stop coming in when it gets colder.

Thanks

steffie

I don't really want to put the bait inside to attract them -- what do you think is the next move.

I suppose I could demand an inspection....they are by my dryer and I don't want them in my dryer. Cand they get in there? I called another one from Angies list and he said to get Maxforce gel and put that in crack. No one seems to think I have a problem.

Thanks.
