Thread: ants problem

    Default ants problem

    kids were back to school,and we had hot days. my backyard is full of ants, bought ants baits from
    Home depot, but it failed to kill ants.

    last nite saw this: Maxforce FC Ant Killer Bait Gel

    Boric acid FTW. Nontoxic to humans and pets, highly effective on ants and roaches. Just put the powder down in areas that they traverse. They walk through it, clean it off, and die of dehydration.

    yea boric acid is the best. Me and a few others i know have been battling ants inside our home for a while now. But that boric acid seems to be keeping em at bay.

    thats what i meant to say was borax, but when skyler said boric acid i confused the two and went with what he said. Borax is a very good ant killer.

    They are the same thing. Borax is just a name brand of boric acid.

    If you have Pharaoh ants, prepare for a long arduous battle! Those things are bad! We've been fighting them for about 14 years! Baits dont work on those, and when you spray them, the colony breaks apart into several colonies, care of their multiple queens!

    If you have fire ants, the only sure-fire way to destroy their colony is to dig down into the nest, locate the mature queen, and smash it!
