I went into my workshop last week and there was a trail of ants going under the door and to my desk.
Yes, I have removed any food sources in the shop and yes I have swept the floor and put an ant trap in the corner but THE FUCKERS ARE STILL FUCKING ALL OVER THE PLACE.
I'm typing this and the little maggots are fucking crawling over my mouse and on my chair. How do I get rid of them??
I need to get them out before one discovers that the door into the house goes straight into the kitchen and suddenly the kitchen is crawling with roaches AND ants.
a lot of people would recommend ant bait stations, but honestly, sometimes they just straight up don't work, and in worst case scenarios actually stimulate the queen(s) to produce fucktons of more eggs, making the problem worse
as far as poisons go, IIRC the best stuff to go with is the gel kind that comes out of a tube - you smear some of that shit on a tray or something, and put some jelly or jam next to it, or alternatively peanut butter (you may need to experiment, depending on the needs of the colony the ants will either go for grease or sugar - peanut butter or jam, respectively) you can get gels at most home improvement stores
depending on the type of ants, there are also unconventional but sometimes equally effective solutions - most ants hate really strong scents, ie cinnamon or pepper or mint, and they also hate powders because of their texture or something. so you can leave lines of powdered cinammon, cayenne pepper or what have you around places where you don't want them to go, because they HATE that shit, and they'll avoid it entirely, but it won't guarantee that it will make the ants go away, they just won't go in those areas
hope that helps
My grandma swears by a simple mix of borax and icing sugar. They take it back to the nest and it poisons the whole lot.
Send them to garry, I believe he's done something with ants, although his thread about it doesn't specify much. :v:
When I had ants in my room I put cinnamon everywhere, it helped a bit.
If you know where the ant mound is, just boil a kettle of water and pour it down the hole
But 2-3 packages of this baits. Place baits.
Wait for 1-2 hours, they will find the baits, every fucking ant in house/area will rush to the baits, loads and loads of ants will come to baits.
5-6 hours later there will be dead ants everywhere, take vacuum cleaner. Clean the dead ants, continue your life like this never happened...
Worked for my ant problem in my house (BTW i'm living at the 7th floor, wtf ants ?) Worth a try imo.
Also i heard lemon juice keeps ants away, so you can try to pour some lemon juice to the door to your kitchen
Let them reform their line, follow it to where they're coming into the house and then mix some borax with confectioner's sugar.
Put that mix near where they're coming into the house and mix a tiny bit of water into it so it's a little wet.
I think OP taken hostage by ants.
He didn't write anything on this thread for four days.
They're gone now.
I guess it took them a day to determine there wasn't anything else left in the room to eat.
Weather got nice foe a single fucking day and GUESS WHO IS BACK?
Granny always used to pour boiling water into the nest, whilst laughing.

Yeah, grannies tend to be sadistic against ants...and snails. Poor crunching bastards...
they always got in the bathroom from a hole in the wall, I plugged it with a spot of toothpaste.
I remember having a Ant problem in the Shed a few years ago, Fuckers were EVERYWHERE. Covered a nice chunk of flooring in fly tape and put a blob of Vegimite in the middle. I found out Ant's love Vegimite.
Cinnamon. Put a line at their trail or the hole they come from. They won't go through it and can't eat it.
Patio door got replaced and there was an ant mound underneath the door, the guys fitting it got all scared when the ants burst from the mound they just unearthed, then they filled in the hole with concrete.

Your patio is now a mass grave. No one must know of your dark secret.
Raid bug barrier works wonders. I had a trail coming into my house and used that. No more ants.
Find the hole, fill it to the brim with cement. Trust me, I've seen it on Youtube.

Then excavate it, for science.
Fuck buying all them anti-bug shit.
We used to have a nest build into the ground right outside my bedroom window, sneaky bastards made their way in and all I did was place a copper dime at their entry.. never seen em again!
