May 29, 2011 - This post has been up since June 2008. I am amazed at the number of people who read it. There are several hundred page views every month. Please take the time to read the various comments after my post. In addition to some success stories, I have been diligent to put up comments from people who don't agree with my thinking and/or experience on this matter. My purpose in writing this was NOT to try to convince others to do what I did, but rather to share my experience.

Since I had no choice, I bought some. I bought two boxes of 4 and followed the instructions by putting them in the ant paths I could see. Put one under the sink, up by the sugars, in the cereal cupboard, one in the corner in the dishwasher (with just 2 of us in the house now we only run it every 4-5 days) and several along the co…

Lowell, MI (edited 1:56 ago)
Things are heating up in the sleepy little town of Lowell, Michigan. It seems one Lowell businessman is suing another for harassment. Cliff Yankovich, partner in a jewelry store and well-known curmudgeon, filed suit today against City Councilman and fellow (multi) business owner Greg Canfield.
"What I have seen cannot be unseen," Yankovich told reporters. "Since Mr. Canfield exposed himself in that way, I have suffered a lot - I can't eat and my sleep patterns are disrupted. My REM sleep has been rammed out of the realm of possibility. My hands shake, I had to call in sick - so I had no choice but to seek legal remedy."
Investigation into the trigger finds the picture below at the genesis of the suit. According to a leaked copy of the suit: Yankovich claims "my eyes were seared and my breakfast …
