Thanks, John. A different tech from the same company came out yesterday. I'm not confrontational at all - I like this company since I used them a few years back - but we have just about given up our kitchen to the ants for now because I've taken everything off the countertops at least temporarily. The tech yesterday did not recommend baiting at least for now but used Phantom inside around the window and on the backsplash of the countertop and on the baseboard of the floor. He said it wasn't necessary to spray on the outside again. He said to leave the ants alone as much as I could. Since the big surge on Monday, we've seen a few here and there - on the countertop and along the baseboard. Do you think that's enough to kill the whole nest? That's what I was wondering about. Not that I'm looking for the baiting to be done if we don't have to, but I'm just wondering if I'm not seeing a ton of them as I did on Monday, if it'll work. So if I am continuing to have a problem, you recommend that I ask if they could spray Termidor around the outside of the window? They would have to get up on a ladder to do that. The tech yesterday said to give it 10 days before I can expect them to be gone. Thanks so much for your time!
