He won't be back, we are just tooooo far away, but I can assure you he went "whole hog" and hit every area possible. The structure is log and square, nothing amazing or unusual. We have had ants over the years and we would spray terro spray and see some dead ones and that would pretty much be it with an occasional ant crossing our path. Neglible frass or none at all over the years. This past year we were not there much and so felt since we were seeing some frass, and that was in closets that were closed up, that it may be wise to get the Termidor treatment as we do not plan to be up much this year either. We have left interior doors open and even left a window open a tad so the ventilation should be okay. Now lots and lots of dead ants. We are thrilled with the job it is doing. I love dead but am concerned that we still saw a few live ones. We are in the woods so it may be that we will continue to have those explorers come in the house and hopefully they will take the transfer effect back to their nests and soon there won't be anymore to come in and explore. That is my hope at this point. What say you? Should this treatment take care of ants for all time or is it something that should be done each year or twice a year? I just want to know how effective Termidor truly is. Thnx John!
