Yup, started a thread on this stuff a few years back when I first heard of it. I reload twice a year now. Just ordered the spring supply.

I'm not sure it will kill a runaway colony that got a head start, but it does a nice job of keeping it from coming back. They make a spray now, I wonder how that works for cleaning? I've found, for it to work best, you need to limit air exchange for a period of time.

The active ingredient is tea tree oil and the manufacturer explains why theirs is worth the month. Here's the link to the thread here:
