Well of course. Amazon is the first place I checked, and then around at both Accuride and a couple others as well as many google searches. Accuride (1029) has a friction fit model that has sketchy...

Angry Drawer slider: Terrible time finding the right center mount slider

...hopefully with a release lever, but I suppose that friction release would be ok.

Checking back in after a while just to update. It seemed to have clobbered the problem in a handful of days, so the bait thing must've done the trick. It's impossible to tell for sure if they were...

Well a different Terminix guy came by today and found what might be the entrance point. A couple holes in the vinyl (part of the design) was probably giving them access. Absolutely NO CLUE *WHY*...

HUH??? Carpenter ants collecting BETWEEN WINDOW AND SCREEN.

Something odd today. We've had 1/2" carpenter ants showing up in the house for a couple weeks. So I had the Terminix guy come and spray the house a few days ago and he left me some "Advance" bait...

I've had good luck with the Terro in a bottle bait before, but I've never seen an ant do anything but walk around enclosed bait stations. Just not enough airborne sweetness/protein or whatever...

Quote by PAbugman:

Advance Ant Bait Stations: Do I have to break it open somehow?

My terminix guy was nice enough to leave some ant bait stations behind for me to place where I saw fit.

The rocks idea from Gunguy45 and Chandler are great, but I didn't even think of Gunguy's idea of hardware cloth. That's awesome---didn't occur to me! Actually I have tons of the stuff, and I didn't...

Filling nail holes in trim: A shiny plaster/glaze that matches white semi-gloss?

Some time ago I had new-construction windows placed into my home (to replace older ones). As a result, all the trimming was replaced.

Yes, that makes sense, but the plants do "well" when watered by the softened tap water, it's just a matter of remembering it.
