ants in ceiling

found syrafoam behind outside cover of fridge. ants in a/c vents inside trailer. found drain for fridge in a tray between fridge and outside cover. I think ants were using it as spa. notice other trailers had the drain going to out side of trailer. had to bomb twice to get rid of ants is this common

Home Defense spray. Been using it for a decade and it works like a charm. Safe to use around children and pets

I would use ant bait like Terro before bombing the trailer. The bomb will just make the ants disburse throughout and won't kill the nests.

The fridge drain end needs to stick outside the fridge vent on the side of the trailer.

Not poisoning my trailer. Bait traps work very nicely.

My Class A had the frig drain routed to a pan this new TT has it routed outside. I would also use the bat to kill the entire colony
