I arranged for the exterminator to do the inside on next Monday afternoon. Then in about a month they will treat the outside. The outside treatment will be repeated once every 3 months for a year (one inside and 4 outside treatments) for a total of $308.75. If the large ants don't go away with the inside and first outside treatment, then they may have a nest in the attic, which will require a separate treatment of about $75. The man said often times that separate treatment isn't needed. The big ants are carpenter ants and they could have their main next in a tree or sometimes in landscaping timbers. I paid for it out of my checking account as my "treat."
The required termite treatment is separate and is scheduled for the 24th.
Dad's generally ok but worried. He was aware of what the gastroenterologist was saying and asked a question, but I forget now what it was, but it was timely and a good one. Oh, I know, it was would it hurt her? They are just going to use a local. He agreed it was a good idea and she would get better nutrition this way and it would be more comfortable than the nose tube. He was able to sign the consent for just fine.
Well, take care and I'll keep you all informed each day. Many thanks to all of you for all your help.
Love and hugs, Anna
