They're ALL pesticides.... Phantom is tricky. If he doesn't have a lot of experience with it, it won't work right.

Agreed that it's too early for the Termidor, that's why I told you to wait. And while you're waiting, you just might find out this is just a surprise springtime invasion that goes away on its own.

I've been doing this for over 45 years, John, I know what I'm talking about. I also have no horse in this race, so you can pretty well figure I'm not trying to talk you into a service you don't need.

As far as the "gel" is concerned, like I said, it's almost always guesswork. As far as I'm concerned, Termidor is really the only thing (as of now) that always does an excellent job of controlling CAs. Why would I want to use anything else?

And as far as the ants are concerned, they're not dirty, they are not vectors or carriers of any disease and they are literally harmless. Don't believe all that BS they tell you about 'all the damage they do.'

You'll be WAY better off (your wallet will too) if you just gulp down the panic and think reasonably. I'm kinda like Cesar Millan - I may kill bugs, but my real job is to train people. That's why I'm here.
