Suzie, sorry if I seemed a bit "uppity." And of course it may seem that (sometimes) I forget that "normal" (lol) people don't look at CAs the way us exterminators do. All exterminators are guilty of this, we all think that the normal people should think like us, but it just doesn't work that way, does it?

You are NOT naughty! Just normal, and, like I said, sometimes I forget that. And you have to remember, that most of the poeople I deal with, on this board, have already been at their wit's end and are often in panic mode. So excuse please, my sometimes condescending mode, if you will. My intention is to always get people on the straight and narrow, making sure they stay out of the panic mode.

Back to basics. No, you should hold off on any more treatments until you know the effectiveness of the one already performed. And just because he didn't use Termidor doesn't mean that it won't work. Just tell him you are "chemical conscious" and prefer to have no more treatments unless you continue to have a problem. At that point, you can ask him about that Termidor treatment, just tell him a friend of yours had it done and it worked perfectly! You don't have to get specific, but it would be best if you called him now, before he schedules your follow up treatments.

And BTW, size of those ants doesn't matter, they come in all sizes and big ones are no worse (or better) than little ones!

So, ok, pardon my bombastic comments from before and have a nice day!

---John
