Got ants

Postby newoldglory » Thu Nov 19, 2015 8:04 pm

I'm now on an eradification program to hunt down and kill ants of all varieties. Here in the glades, ants will move into any structure that will harbor them while the water level is up. I have carpenter, black, red, the long skinny ones that fall out of trees onto you and find their way into you're cloths before nailing you-- and sugar ants. I had been slacking on ant control until now. A little spray here and there but tonight did it. I don't get into town often and when I do I like to enjoy a specialty meal of my choosing. Today I chose Subway. I gobbled down half of the samwitch and brought the rest home with me for later. Just a minute ago, I started eating the other half and was away from it for maybe 2 minutes. I went to pic it up and there were no less than 200 of these little specks that had confiscated my meal. Well guess what? They have no flavor at all what so ever! You should have seen their faces as I placed them into my mouth. This is not going to happen here. ---Interesting--after eating and mashing a large number of them, they stopped coming. :scratch: I will spray tomorrow, I am not going to miss a good meal.

Never know, you might even be able to house break em too. :scratch:

Granted. My problem is that most folks won't eat food that is being drug off the table by parasites. :scratch:

Gerald try this formula it has work great for me with those small piss ants or sugar ants actually works great for most ants. I have tried everything. This has worked the best for me good luck. If you worried about spaying all the toxic chemicals this is not so bad.

Try DEAMON in a pump sprayer....lasts 6 months

Can get at Pest Control General Store, it's what most commercial home pest contractors use. The Sears guy tipped me off few years ago. Just have to use it up within 36 hours mixing. It is a powder in a water soluble packet you drop it in and let it sit for 5 minutes then shake and spray. Easy to use and 1/2 gal does an entire house inside and out.

Spray with Windex with amonia. Will kill on contact when sprayed on them.

I am making notes of all these agents. Very interesting as to how easy it is to control insects once you have the knowledge. I've already seen a significant reduction in ants and drunks. 8) :lol: :lol: :lol: :roll:

Works on most spiders too, and they avoid any area that's already been sprayed.
