I just wanted to put something else out there. I read a few other posts where you mentioned Termidor perimeter spraying. I'm thinking it might be a good idea to try that since the ants don't appear to be going for the baits. What do you think?
I just have one issue with doing a perimter treatment. I heard this is supposed to be sprayed against the bottom of the foundation walls about 1 foot up and one foot out away from the foundation on the ground. How do you handle situations where a large portion of the rear of the house runs up against a deck? Do you just spray around the perimter of the deck as opposed to the house or do you try crawling under the deck to reach the foundation and then spray (would be very difficult - tight space, or do you remove deck boards to spray it (lots of work) or is there possibly some kind of long extension for the sprayer that you can insert from the outer perimeter of the deck to reach the foundation walls? This part is really puzzling me. Rest of the house is a non-issue. Thanks.
