Renee writes,

I have ants coming in my bathroom from the ceiling. What else do I need to do to kill these ants.

I bought Taurus SC and sprayed it around my house and up the foundation to the siding. There is some/little indication of ants on part of my foundation. I just sprayed this two days ago. The ants in my bathroom are getting worse. Many now have wings!!!! I finally found out exactly where they are coming from; a gap between the can light insert and the sheet rock. The gap is about 1/4 inch all around the can light. Isn't there something else I can spray or a dust I can put up in those cracks to kill the colony. They did not respond to bait. Or, do we need to treat our attic crawl space with something. I know I need to give Taurus SC time to work but the ants are getting worse in my bathroom. They don't go back up to the can light. They basically die on the counter top.


Yes, it can take awhile for the Taurus to transfer and eradicate the ant colony. You may also want to use Phantom for inside those cracks and crevices. Phantom has a transfer effect allowing insects to pick up the product and spread it to one another through touch and food-sharing.
