    Try baiting them with cornmeal. They can't digest and will die but you have to hope that queen gets a treat as well. It won't hurt grass. Be prepared to see them come out like crazy which is good the more that eat it and take to their nest the better chance queen will eat.

    Boil some water and pour it down in the mound.

      The problem is this..... the dirt absorbs the water really fast.... and the heat is dissipated quickly... so it never reaches the "nest"

    We have had the best success with the AMDRO line of ant products.... READ and follow all the instructions

    Hi there, Use Ant powder on the nest - that should kill them off eventually. Good luck!

    The Jiffy cornmeal mix works very well, do not bake it, just shake the contents around the anthill and watch the action.

    Use Diatomaceous Earth. It's safe and easy to use, and works!

    75/25 or slightly stronger mix of water and vinegar. Bring to a boil and pour over the mound. Worked for mine
