  • Yes. I've had my kitchen sprayed by a company that comes out 2X a year. They had to come out twice and I still have them. They spray in one spot and the ants move to another. Then they sprayed in the new spot and they still figured out another way. I've been finding them further away from my sink now. Of course, I'm not the best housekeeper in the world and I have 4 kid under the age of 7 who constantly drop things. My 1-1/2 year old twins spill cracker crumbs everywhere so I'm sure the ants think my house is paradise.
