My wife and I are living in an apartment "between" houses. We close on
our new house in 36 days...
our apartment was occupied by ants or termites before we left. Not
being a scientist, I cannot tell the difference.
any ideas for verifying the furniture in the apartment is not
"infected" prior to moving to new house?
the first several months problem was with toiletries and food, and
apartment management came hired an exterminitor. I believe they baited
where the "ants" were thought to be coming from. For about a month no
ants were seen.
A few weeks ago a loaf of banana bread was attacked by "ants"
Yesterday a drawer full of paper was attacked. Thinking that ants
don't eat paper, my thought is a termite problem.
I think the apartment is a lost cause (we got what we paid for). My
primary concern is the couch, box springs, recliner and one dresser we
have in the apartment. How can I be sure this problem does not follow
me to our newly built house?
