Pest Control in the Home
LESLIE: Now we’ve got Sonny in Florida who’s dealing with some uninvited visitors to the home. What can we do for you?SONNY: Aw, man I’ve got the sugar ants, pharaoh ants and there’s a few other things I want to call them. (Tom and Leslie chuckle) I mean it’s just – and I take that stuff that you buy at the store – the sugar stuff; whatever’s in it …TOM: Right.SONNY: I mean they chew on it for a couple of days and they disappear and they show up somewhere else. And I mean I’ve done it like three or four times.TOM: This may be the time to stop being your own do-it-yourself pest control pro and hire a real one. You know, there are products out today for ants, Sonny, that are undetectable and what’s cool about these is that the ants – once these products are applied by a pro, the ants can march through them and not know that they’re exposing themselves to these chemicals. Then they take them back to the nest and it wipes out the whole colony. It’s a far more effective way than the baits, which requires each ant to actually eat it, to be eradicated. And there’s a lot more of them than there are of us, so you need to kind of get smart with it and having a pro come in and put down one of the undetectable pesticides is probably the best way to do this.SONNY: Alrighty. I appreciate it.TOM: Sonny, thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
