I placed an order for Termidor today from Amazon. It will be here next week!
I have small confession... whilst I was waiting for your last reply I called one of the "big guys" for an estimate. I'm actually glad I did because it made me even MORE confident that I can solve my ant problem on my own. This guy didn't even look around my property! He stood in my basement for two minutes (where there are no ants) declared I didn't have termite (didn't ask about termites) and then told me I needed to sign up for a yearly plan to order to maintain the ants. His solution: "well, we will continue to do some of what you did, but you know, with our stuff."
One thing of note that he said is that I don't have carpenter ants and that these are sugar ants. I don't know how he could knew this considering he didn't look around the house. He said I would have extensive wood damage and wood piles if these were carpenter ants.
Thanks for all your great advice!
