John - Wanted to check with you about what's going on. Today is Day 8 of the last treatment with Phantom inside the house. The technician said to wait 10 days. This is the second treatment done; the first one included an outside treatment of Termidor since I had a ton of ants going up and down the outside of our deck steps. The problem began as usual with the ants at the kitchen window. So for days now I've seen maybe a half dozen dead ones on the sill of the window and on the countertops in the morning. Last night something must have stirred them up. I saw 15-20 around the window and along the backsplash of the countertop. All these areas were treated. I pretty much left them alone as I was told to do except for a few that got into the sink. This morning there were probably about a dozen maybe that were picked up on paper towels when I cleaned off the countertop. I'm staying away from the treated areas. There were a few active ones around the window. I've cleared my kitchen of everything that I can so that the countertops are clear, and I'm not cooking much these days. The only thing I think could have stirred them up was I put part of a salad I had for dinner down the sink though I did run the disposal and rinsed out the sink as I've been doing. It wasn't too long after that that the ant party showed up. Saturday will be 10 days. What's your "take" on this? Not sure if I want to call in about this today or just wait until Saturday. I really would love to have my kitchen back. Oh, and last evening as I was watering my flowers outside, when I watered a potted hanging flower (it's never been indoors) I noticed a bunch of ants running around in that. Geez. Thanks for your time!
