Re: ants

Thanks Tony, and others who chimed in.
I don't have the carpenter ants IN the house.  They were in my garage door
molding.  I had them evicted and the pest control company said I should
spray every month around the garage door to keep them from re-entering.
I've read the CES bulletins, but they always seem to name several items
without brand names, so I was hoping for an easy answer.  The Ortho-Chlor
should be easy enough to find.  Thanks!
