Ant Control Help


#1

Anybody have any advice on ants? Do ant granules work? Ants are infesting my home and fruit trees.


#2

I’m in Florida and have had some major ant problems. I use this. I works here.

And this on Fire ants


#3

Make a bait with a very small amount of borax in it.
Sometimes they like sweet ,… sugar , honey , fruity stuff.
Other times they want protein , meat.
Add very small amounts of borax to what they will eat.
They take it back to the nest , killing the whole nest .
May take them a week or so to slow down
Cheap , effective

I have been running with the borax. It works, but I live around woods and there are a lot of ants. I need them dead faster. The older the orchard gets I feel like every insect and animal for miles is looking to move in with me.


#5

It won’t kill them,but Tanglefoot should keep ants out of the trees.bb

Try the bulk product DominAnt or terro pco. You can buy this by the gallon.


#7

Research the active ingredient, ignore the brand name… Is my way of thinking.

DominAnt: Active Ingredient Borax (B4Na2O7.10H2O) 5.4%
Terro PCO: Active Ingredient Borax (B4Na2O7.10H2O) 5.4%

Both are made by the same company Nisus. DominAnt is a commercial replacement for the Terro PCO professional product. Terro 2% is sold at Home Depot in small packets.

FYI for ~$4 you can either get 2oz of Terro, or 4lbs of Borax. Terro is <6% Borax and the rest mostly sugar (Sucrose).
