Ants

Answered

OK Folks. I got rid of the 'sweet' ants. This other group walks on cinninon, ignores baking soda and sugar and ignores Terro. After a $150.00 quote from a Pest Company, I got out my Mr. Clean and sprayed like heck. It killed 'em, but a few hours later they were back. One group seems to love my Myers Lemon tree, but I cannot figure out where they are coming from. Suggestions??

    You can mix up some homemade soap mix using Borax...the boron in the Terro is very much like the natural Boron in Borax.

    I know everyone is going to freak out about what I am about to say , but it was a very desperate time the ants were just everywhere and thousands were in my living room and front doorway .My ant killer was not working,and there was a massive nest outside my front door where the ants were coming from. I ended up spaying Break Cleaner in the ant hill, for lack of a better idea . I was in full panic. It worked instantly ! Now, before everyone gets all up in arms about its not natural and so toxic and so on . I know this. Like I said I was freaking out. they were just coming and coming there were just thousands.I'm just saying if you find your self in this spot and you need to stop it NOW and you know where the nest is , this worked for me. Under normal circumstances I never would have gone this root. Now I practice prevention .

    A mix of flower or sugar and Borax usually works, but keep it away from pets.
