      Peppermint oil will deter them ruthlessly. It wonโ€™t kill them, but they hate it. Wipe some undiluted on a cotton ball around any entrances, window sills, etc... and hide cotton balls in corners where they seem to enter. Repeat this every so often and you wonโ€™t have them in your home, at least.

    Well naturally it's hard - I like to get boiling water and pour on their nests. If they're in the house though you may want to contact an exterminator.

    If you can find any mounds in your yard try this first. We boil water then make a hole in the top of their mount and pour the water down the hole. Then I would call a pest control company and have them treat your home and yard.

    Inside ? Or outside ?

    Look into a product called diatomaceous earth . It is all natural can be used both inside or outside , is safe to use around kids and pets. It can be used for tons of purposes , one of them being ridding a house of insects. Good luck !!

      You can buy it on Amazon for about $10 , I don't know how much that equals in you currency..

  • I use packaged cornbread mix that says it is sweetened and put it where they are. They will take it to the mound, everyone will eat it and die, they can't digest the cornmeal, but will take it because it is sweetened. Little goes a long way.

    I read this from : Itsmemic

    Medicated powder from the Dollar Tree. It has eucalyptus in it...menthol...I puff it around my homes foundation..and inside under my birdcages in the cracks under moldings. Work immediately and they never come back. I do this at the first sign of one day..GONE. The powder is in a very large container and lasts quite awhile too !! And smells great !

    Not toxic to my birds OR dog

    What if you make a barrier around the house.

    I did some research, since we know what works for one person doesn't always work for another. I found this site and it's pretty informative. I know some tips you may not be able to use but there are some good ones also that will hopefully help.

    Ants are so weird. One time I found them inside the freezer in the garage!! What would possess them to go inside a freezer only to die? They must have sent signals back or something ~ there were no ant trails only a freezer full of dead ants. Hasn't happened since.
