With now being the most important time of year to walk and spray the perimeter of your home in order to protect it from termites, I thought I might be a good idea to share the product you prefer most.

Not sure who recommended it to me, but I've found Bifen IT to be very effective in killing just about anything capable of crawling up the side of your slab. Not the cheapest product but a lot less expensive than home repairs.

My pest guy uses Bifen for spiders, fleas and ticks. For termites he uses Taurus S/C.

I used Advance to kill the carpenter ants. It worked.

Good to know. I'll probably die before I use up all the Talstar I bought though.

I'm sure there are many others like me that weren't aware of generic insecticides that cost less.

Iíve been using Sevin dust on fire ants. Stir the nest area until they all come boiling out and starting powdering them. Works for me.
