I was told that Termidor is not licensed for use in New York State. Do you know if thats true or if they're feeding me a line of .... ?

I asked another exterminator to come out and they wanted $800 to inject gas into the walls and $75 a month for a year for continued treatments in order to warranty the initial procedure.

And I'm trying to get out of my contract with Orkin because all they do is spray the doors and windows and call it a day.

Nobody seems interested in actually helping me to find the ants.

I have a couple of questions:

Since 90% of them are winged ants and dead, is it likely that they are swarming out of the wall or ceiling and encountering the spray that was put down and dying?

Or is there any chance that theyre actually swarming into the house for some reason? (Unlikely I know).

I'm seeing 20-30 ants per day now around the same area in that room, most dead, many twitching, some alive.
