It's that time of year again.
One small drop of jelly on the counter and a hundred ants will find it.

This calls for extreme offensive measures!

I have to replace my water heater tomorrow so just happened to have the right tool handy.

Die ants die!

If your ants like sugar try mixing borac acid, it's a cheap white powder used to kill roaches, with something sweet. I use sugar free maple syrup because the regular syrup harden too fast. Put many drops on small squares of paper where you find ants. Watch the ants go crazy over it. 6 days later no more sugar ants for the rest of the year.

When I start seeing ants scouting in the house each spring, I run Amdro ant-block around the perimeter of the house. No more ants.

Chili powder.Sprinkle it around their holes,'raceways',anywhere you find ants.they get it on their feet/bodys and take it to the colony.They die.
