    mix borax into whatever food they seem most attracted to. Leave on their track protected from kids and animals. They will take it back and feed the queen.

    An easy cure is potted mint. They avoid it like the plague and it smells nice too. I use on my patio, entrance door, walkway etc. Keep it contained in flower beds as it multiplies quickly.
