keeping those little piss ants away

Blog entry by bryonbuzz posted 152 days ago 4126 reads 0 times favorited 1 comment Add to Favorites Watch

we have a 67 year old house with a stone and mortar and dirt foundation and over the past 3-4 years we were getting a pot of those real small ants . We tried everything to rid our house of them but then i tried a new idea . I found if you go to home depot and get the natural flea and tick spray for dogs and cats and spray where the ants are coming in it keeps them away for weeks . Once all this dam snow gets out of here im going to spray the entire out side perimeter with it . Hope this helps everyone

Funny you should say this – I just got finished dealing with ants. The flea and tick solution may repel more than kill them.

I found this in a book and decided to put it to the test – hard to do if you have pets.

I mixed a good tablespoon of honey with a tablespoon of boric acid (bought it at a box store). I had some small pieces of wood from some wood shutters (off cuts) that I made and put some on each. I put them where I saw the little critters. Within a few minutes I was feeding every ant in the state – or so it seemed. The next day, there were only a few, two days later, none.

It seems that ants do not taste the boric acid but it kills the queen. It is one of those things that ants and most living things will not do well with – including cats dogs and children, so great care must be taken in where you put the bait.
