        the best thing on the market is fipronil. you will have to check products and look for fipronil on the active ingredients. but let me warn you it is expensive.

              You should have no problem finding a comparable test plug. I've even seen them at some home centers like Lowes or Home Depot. Winnelson should have them if it's a branch geared somewhat toward plumbing.

              Don't lose confidence if when you ask they act like it doesn't exist. They just haven't learned about them yet.

              You'll need a 3" or 4". Measure the inside of your pipe and make sure the one you buy goes into the pipe. Tightening the nut will expand it to fit.

              Good luck. I'm gonna' get me some fipronil and get crazy.

                thanks a lot J.C.


                our winnelson sells only plumbing supplies.

                and i wish you the best of luck on the ants. they seem to get worse year by year and now make up a large part of our work.

                    Winnelson is similar to a fergusons.

                    They'll have a test plug that will work for what you're doing.

                    The ants here are taking over. I was thinking of carpet bombing my yard with something nasty.
                    No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.
