ant trap?

Recommended Posts

Tip for the day ...buy some table leg coasters that fit under the table legs and fill with ant powder ...my current set have been going for over a year and no ants on the dining room table devouring food ...

Terro is borax and sugar.  You're paying extra because you think mixing borax with sugar and water to be complicated.

If you see dead ants on your counter then you failed.  You're not trying to kill the ants, you're trying to kill the queen.  If the ants die before they get back to their lair then your poison is too strong.  You need to weaken them a little bit.  You need to give the ant enough time to live long enough to get back to its lair.  This is why ant chalk doesn't work.  They kill the ant on the spot while the queen keeps laying more eggs.

Killed some of them. New problem: They don't like eating in graveyard yes? Some boxes were turned into swimming pool and drops with the dead floating are not touched anymore.

So I'm supposed to use small drops and clean or replace them as soon as they start dying around?

A few seem got lost, wandering around fast with no destination and no interest in the food I gave them. Are they out of their mind because of borax??

How can I force feed them? Dropping it on them is not working they just get drowned.

BTW pouring borax over the grass wouldn't harm it right??

You need to get a very small eye dropper and when they open their mouths drop it in .

They call the little black ants that seemingly aimlessly scurry all over the place "Crazy Ants"for good reason. They just have a different foraging pattern, but they are almost always the first to come to any source of food (or bait). You are correct that they don't like to feed where there are the dead bodies of their buddies. Would you eat at a restaurant where there are dead people laying all over the place? Set up your baits so the ants don't fall into the liquid and drown. Keep the bait sites clean up, so there are no dead ants around. Sponges work pretty good as bait sites. just soak the sponges and set them out. The ants will surround them, and they can't fall in.

well I've been trying to find a place to watch drug pushers and poor lads getting shot, it's supposed to be a common scene everywhere now as some on Internet claims. would make lunch less boring.

will get sponges. Why can't cardboard and paper bags work though? Are they toxic here?

...or you an just buy some borax, and mix the ant bait yourself. The ants will drink it and carry it back to the nest to feed every ant in the colony. Then they all die. Borax is available at Benny's Pawnshop at the corner of Sanciangko and Palaez streets in Colon.

Any seller around IT Park, Capitol or Banilad?

have to buy it now. I'm taking the war outside and need a lot more borax. They emptied all my bottles in a few hours! I want to exterminate all ants in the community and adjacent neighborhood - there wouldn't be any side effect yes?
