    Ah. Well I taped but did not use drape on the walls so in a couple of places the roller brush touched the wall. Fortunately, I was able to touch it up well enough until the guys can paint it next month. This time I taped with Frogtape and then used the tape with plastic that went down 2ft and didn't get anything on the cabinets

    Ok - got a question for y'all. How do I get rid of ants when Amdro doesn't seem to be doing it? Do I need to put more Amdro? I put in on Friday and it doesn't seem to have done anything

    Don't laugh. This works. Take a shovel full of one ant nest and dump it on another nest. Then take a shovel full of that nest and dump it on the first nest. The ants will start a war with each other and kill each other off, leaving empty ant nests.

    Water with Dawn soap will kill them.

    Boiling water works also.

    a tree out by my front gate,.. with a lot of black ants, then overnight switched to a lot of red ants, no black ones,.. back and forth, one color'd seize it then the other. I watched those ants battle over that tree for years,.. the reds finally won, have controlled the tree for more than 5 years now.
