My new house has an ant problem. I moved into this place in August. Shortly after, I started to notice the little fuckers. I tried the bait thing... yeah, that didn't work. I bought a spray bottle of stuff and hit the outside of the house. That seemed to get me through until winter with only seeing a few here and there. Now, the assholes are back and in numbers. I see them mostly in the kitchen, which is on an outside wall. I used that same spray to hit the outside of the house. That lasted a few weeks. Yesterday morning, I found a line of them coming from an outside wall and going 15 feet across the floor right to the cat food. I hit the area where they were coming in from both the inside and outside. I also did a good wipedown of the counters and mopped the floor. This morning, I wake up to see them coming into the kitchen from behind the wall plate for garbage disposal switch and going across the counter to one little crumb that I had missed. I hit the whole outside of the house with what was left in that spray bottle. I also killed power to the garbage disposal and sprayed around it. Once it dried, I turned the power back on. Based on previous results, I am sure this will be only a temporary measure. I want to go full on thermonuclear on these bastards. Any suggestions? I am down to the following two items: http://www.scotts.com/smg/goprod/ortho-hdm-perimeter-indoor-insect-killer/prod70044/ http://www.scotts.com/smg/goprod/ortho-hdm-insect-killer-granules/prod70030/ I am thinking the spray because it will have a more immediate effect, but am also considering the pellets in addition to the spray to really make sure the job is done right. edit to add: The only thing I am not too stoked about on this shit is that it's just putting up a barrier. How the fuck do I locate the nest and destroy it?
