    Looking for a reputable ant and pest control company in the Pawtucket RI / Attleboro MA area. Have always had ants in the yard but now they are finding their way into the house. I have always treated the perimeter with store bought liquids (various brands) and then do the yard with granular Terro via spreader. Just not cutting it now and need the pros. What am i looking to pay for a year contract (quarterly or monthly). Thanks in advance for all recommendations.

    Termidor sc or the generic version Taurus sc. Save your money and just get this. We had a very bad ant problem when moving into a new house. Bug guy couldn’t get them so we got termidor and after a week haven’t seen a ant in over a year. It will kill honey bees though so be careful with application

    I second Taurus SC. Stuff took care of my carpenter ants after my last grapple truck log delivery, bald face hornets and termites that were invading a tree close to the house. Concentrate should last me for a few years and was only $40.

    We used to get swarms of ants when I was a kid. Dad would douse them with gasoline and light the concrete patio on fire. Spectacular!

    Probably not smart, and may explain my disdain for safety.

    Keady Pest out of Norwood. Those guys are great. Reasonable. They are very proactive. They come quarterly to check on everything. Ants, carpenter bees, mice, rats, mothers-in-law, you name it, they keep it out.

    Yes, they'll travel to Attle of Borrows. Hell, they travel to the Ville of Lakes.

    Is that stuff great or what!!! Saw it used at a friends camp where termites moved in and you could hear the chewing in the wall. Calls a pro in who really enjoyed his job and killing stuff. He says to us watch this as he fires up some smoke machine loaded with that stuff. They were crawling out of holes in the siding we couldn't even see and falling dead to the ground. It was too cool to watch. He showed me the bottle and of course I had to have some. I've since bought other stuff not as potent for other tasks related with bugs and have been very happy.

    Spiders and cluster flys be damned. Eliminated about 90% of that problem last year and will work on getting to the places I didn't bother with this year.
