Ant Issues

Name: Lori

City: Shelby Township

Question: I know it’s only February but the black ants have already begun their spring visit.  I live in a colonial and I am finding them

in the upstairs bathroom.  My guess is they are coming from the attic, however, there is no bathroom fan in this bathroom.  Is it too early to have an exterminator come out?  What products do you recommend?

Choosing Countertops

Name: Kristie

City: Livonia

Question: There was a lady wanting advice about remodeling her kitchen and I too would like to do that. I wasn’t sure what counter tops you said are the best. Someone I know has granite and said some things that make me think they are not for me. Also I don’t know if I should get new cupboards or what I should do. You can email me or if you want can call me.

Thanks

Kristie
