Ant Whisperer. LOL. Where in NE Ohio? (City)

I think you need to DUMP the Big O... They're really not doing you any favors. They could do better to cure your problem, but all they're really doing is emptying your wallet. They call it a "walletectomy" in the trade.

And I understand your reluctance for "a lot of chemicals," but, sometimes, you gotta bite the bullet. Nobody uses less chemicals than I do, but the chemical treatment I am going to recommend is not anything you need to be afraid of. Applied by a professional, there is no reason to worry abou that.

Seek out a local independent, (skip the biggies) and find out what they would charge you for an inside/outside treatment with Termidor and Phantom. If they don't know what you're talking about, or want to use anything else, keep looking. Termidor is used on the outside, Phantom on the inside. This treatment is very effective and normally is only needed once per season - which is most of the reason the biggies don't recommend it - it's too final.

You could even try just the outside treatment with Termidor and skip the inside treatment. I do that about half the time with the same results.

Tell me where you are and I'll see if I know a good guy close by.
