Nah it's under warranty. But I had to buy a second one. Those ants owe me lots of money!

Says it is no longer made, next time take it to a repair shop. $149 is a lot to trash.

being repaired - waiting now. I wonder what will happen after the warranty is expired? I don't see service centers; I sent back to Rustan's but they don't seem to know about the whole procedure.

GOOGLE says it was made in OZ. They cannot repair stuff made here.

If I seal all of current exits of the colony, would they stop coming or they would just find another hole? I'm growing inpatient - 2 days for this colony already and even though most of them have gone a few are still walking with no sign of malfunction. A lot of drops made, most untouched. They're into something...

there are several groups. first two groups were wiped out on first day but then others come. Large brown and black ones are quick to fall, and black jumpy ants are few not building nests. The small brown ones are hardest I killed several groups already and sealed their homes and flooded with poison.

They are the ones always looking for new nests and killed my kettle. Maybe I could build homes for them and kill them there?

It seems that word got out in the ant world that you provide a never ending buffet for them at your place. In which case i expect you will be seeing a lot more ants !

The ants still alive will probably  try to enter ur ear out of revenge.

See that's why I must kill them wherever I find them.

No more tolerance of worms.

Nah gin is safe. Ants don't dare to touch alcohol. They don't the stomach for it!

Then pour it across the thresholds of your doors and the window sills. Maybe that will keep the ants out.

How long can they live without their colony?

I sealed the last one and kept a group alive to search for new holes that I can block. They made no progress tonight. Should I kill them or just let them run around until death?? They don't look tired or hungry despite no food, just keep going forth and back and talk to each other.
