Hi John!

I've actually kept a log since this started in March, it's pretty interesting to note all the changes since I applied the Termidor!

It went from a couple ants a day

spray termidor

dead ants every day for all of April, lots at first, few towards the end

Beginning of May dying ants for about a week, then nothing! End of 'normal' CAs!

End of May, big winged CAs of doom! 2-4 every day since they started showing up, no change since.

According to what I jotted down, I've killed / seen 76 of them so far over the last 3 weeks, and they're still coming... do you think it's something that warrants more action or should I just keep letting it be for now? I love the waiting game, but there's really been no progress. (Although not a single 'normal' CA in more than a month!)

And yikes, today is a bit different. It's just passed noon and I've already seen 5 of them come out to play, all of them seem to be have come out at the same time, which is a bit scarier than dealing with just 1 every few hours! I'm guessing this heat (central Jersey) is the cause. Unfortunately I expect to see lots more today, which is saddening!


I hope you're enjoying the heat, and I hope my annoying little updates / question aren't too bothersome!
