Kathy from Bauxite, Ar writes,

How or can you rid a fifth wheel camper that is overrun with little black or red ants inside and out?

Recently purchased this camper, went camping and an hour or so later the counters were covered with ants, used baits and got rid of some of them. We took it back to the dealer and they used a bomb inside, killed a lot of them but they are still there, they are crawling on the outside of the camper as well. I recently purchased some Talstar from your company but I am unsure about how to get rid of the ants in the walls....never done this before so I would like some info before I ever start. Thanks in advance and hope you can help me.


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.
