Hi John,


I can't find anyone here who will do what you're suggesting (Turbidor/Phantom). We did have some results with our baiting. I hired a service to bait and put granular poison outside. They want to use a spray on the house, but we would like to hold off, and see if we get results without spraying. I am under no obligation to continue with subsequent treatments, but I think I will get regular treatments because this method is not as powerful as the one shot turbidor/phantom method. I have been observing the ants closely, and I'm pretty sure I know where they are. Unfortunately, inside three outer walls.

Could I take the months of Nov to March off, since the ants will be dormant then?

Also, how would you take out a tree root colony? We have one close to the foundation.

By the way, that guy who I mentioned earlier was very uncomfortable with my question about whether or not his repellent would trap the insects inside the house, and then told me he wouldn't work with me if I didn't get the whole treatment, monthly up until September. He works out of his house, too.

I appreciate your input.

Heather
