Hi,
I asked a question a few weeks ago and you had advised me to get an exterminator to spray termidor/phantom. Well, I found the one guy in my area willing to do it - and we've been waiting for weeks for a day when the forcast didn't include rain. We finally settled on tomorrow because it wasn't supposed to rain until Saturday, but now they've changed the forcast and there is a chance of showers both thurs and late Fri. Can I still have him spray? How long does it need to be dry? Keep in mind they've been forcasting a ton of rain and we've gotten almost none of it.

k - so #2 - I haven't done anything to the ants, but there are a TON of dead ants in my garage and on my front stoop. Plus they've taken some of their eggs out onto my front stoop. I baited with Terro forever ago... and I've been killing the ones I see in the house (which the last few days, with the humidity, have been A LOT - probaby close to 100 today) but that's all I've done. Ideas on what's up? I mean, hopefully they'll all be dead soon enough, but I'm curious.

#3 do I need to be concerned at all with my 20 month old with the Phantom. The guy said no, but I wanted to ask you. Do I need to air the house out or anything like that after he sprays?

Thanks again for the info.
