Sick of small black ants

June 22nd, 2011 at 03:03 am

I have millions of ants on my property, about four different kinds but no fire ants though. If they stay in the yard I let them be but in my house thatís another story. Owing to the very wet past eight months and now cold weather they have decide to move in and make nests inside.

I have found nests in my curtain rods in my bedroom and another bedroomís drawers. Today I have found them in some my videos that I still have here, I had to just dump them into the rubbish bin as the nests are inside the tape area. As least CDís donít need to be dumped, just dusted!

Now the house smells of surface spray that I have used to kill them. Iím hoping that I donít find too many more nests but you never know until one sees an ant trail somewhere. These areas have no food or water near them either.

They are starting to cost money!

    Maybe you should spray around the outside foundation of your house, BEFORE they get inside.

    I have to suggest two things. Get a perimeter bug killer for ants and put it around the perimeter of the house (unless you have kids or dogs or pets in the area). In my case, I put it all around the front of the house where the dogs don't have access.

    Then I used Terro in the area where i found the ants (again not where kids and evil chihuahuas can access it) and put the liquid on pieces of tin foil. A million ants showed up, got drunk as skunks and either died miserably or went home to spread the plague to their brethren. Cost - $20.

    I like Miz Pat's idea. Waste those little buggers. Wink Outside, they are fine, but they are invading your space and it leads to a lot of frustration and effort and expense! You need to have some insurance that the outside critters stay outside... on the good side, at least they aren't fire ants or carpenter ants!

    Boric acid is supposed to be pretty effective when you sprinkle it outside, and much cheaper.
