A little sugar water with boric acid in a Gatorade cap. Make sure the boric acid makes it thick. They will all die in no time. Make sure you don't have any animals around to get to it though. Also spray the outside of the foundation with a good ant spray.

This has been a bad year for ants. The Terro baits work pretty well.

You could also try spreading the granules made for ants 2-3 feet all around the mobile home.

SAFER Brand diomataceous earth
that white powder that is edible it's so safe
lowes has it....

made from ultra tiny skeletons from sealife like
krill and brine shrimp ect.harvested from the sea.

the powder perforates their exoskeleton s grinding holes
into their armor and acts as a desiccant... dehydrating them!

yesterday i was lucky to find a huge colony ---it was huge like
a tiny ant woodstock in a very thick circle
could have been 500 000 ants
and i quickly grabbed a spray can and made them dead.
it was only 5 feet from the house.

Yea but if they're bad you've got to get them outside.

Yes. I have found that if they are bad, I have to do 3 treatments of Terro. I think that has to do with baby ants hatching. Gotta kill em in waves.

well i have this very old stone cutting board on my kitchen counter
that's been in the family for generations .....
the Tiny ants were invading big-time and scurrying back underneath
the cutting board because it's raised up a notch on rubber feet.

so i removed it and spread the safer D earth there and spread it around
then i put into the crack too.... between the counter top and the wall.
they have left the building.... without pesticides containing chemicals!

cleaning something outside this am with the hose
over by the tree
the black carpenter ants started pouring out at the base of the tree
so i grabbed the super ANT spray fast and destroyed another nest !
i'll be buying two more cans , one to use and another for infestations
but STRICTLY for outdoor use.

well i did both!! terro baits and the safer spray, and after just about a hour bam no more ants! at least for now! Thanks Guys

If they come back just get some meth. Find a young blonde with yellow teeth and a couple c sections. Give her a straw. Then give her a crumb piece of the cornbread for every 1000 ants she snorts. It will cost you a few hundred but you won't have ants in a 3 block radius.

If they're odorous ants (they smell like rotten coconut if you crush them), get some of this stuff. They carry it back to the nest and that's the end of it. It usually completely stops an invasion in 24 hours for me.

my nemesis in ANTS is the dreaded :af: FIRE-ANT :af:

just reading about a unique way to handle them using soap and orange oil i believe ....

got bit by one and i wanted that arm "gone" it was so bad.
