It's been almost exactly a year since I gave the house the perimeter Termidor treatment. You may remember I've had problems with CA's over the past years, and nothing has done much to stop them - until you got me turned on to Termidor.
Last summer, not one ant, either inside the house, or on the outside walls and surrounding sidewalks. We normally would be starting to see them by now, and the few warm days we have had would have brought them out around the house, too.
Nothing. Not one. I did a real major spray, and you did advise me that you wouldn't have used that much - but it seemed to work great last year.. I wonder If I knocked out a nest either in the house, (there was a suspicious area under a bathtub we tore out a few years ago) or just outside. My question is - should I do a preventative spray, or just hold off hoping the problem is more permanently solved? I've still got over half the bottle of Termidor left, and just bought a new sprayer.. Maybe I'm a bit trigger happy, but I want to stay ahead of the little pests if I can..
