Carrie from Kansas City,mo Writes,
03/16/2012:

I have ants in every room of my house! I don't see a trail, how do I get rid of them?

The ants are in every room, bathroom, hallway, ceilings, floors. They are very small, and I never see them in large groups, just one here, one there. I cant find a trail. Ive been using Terro, but, only about 20-30 will eat off of it. I think I see some of them go into the metal ring around my kitchen sink. How do I get rid of them if there isnt enough eating the poison to take homme to momma? How do I kill them?

Answer:

Phantom Aerosol would be a good choice for you. Phantom should be applied around baseboards, door frames, window frames and places where utilities (cables, pipes and wires) enter through the wall as these are the most likely places for the ants to enter/exit. Phantom is a non-repellent insecticide that has a delayed reaction which allows ants time to get back to the colony and spread the product. In essence, the ants will not be able to tell that the product is in place and they will pick it up on the fine hairs all over their body and inadvertently carry it back to the colony where over a course of a few days it will knock out the entire colony. Phantom works really well because you don't have to worry about whether the ants will all take the bait, they just need to walk over the treated areas.
