Another Ant rid convert here. And another one who grew up in a county with no insects, not like Australia anyway Ants don't freak me out as much as cockroaches though!!! They flip me out totally yuck!
We get this problem every year when the weather gets dry. Maybe you could go around the outside of the house as well and put a few drops on any obvious nests to kill the ones around the perimeter of the house. Just go slowly and look for ant trails. Put the drops somewhere on the trail. A 10c sized piece is heaps.
They are persistent little suckers! They swarmed my pantry last year, that was yuck! This year they targeted the kitchen table
I'm heading out to get Ant Rid!!!! hate the little buggers. I could smell them last night and yep, a trail of them under the couch. they come through the cracks in the window pane... I've been using sticky tape to patch up the holes. grrrr.
Okay so I got ant rid in bunnings this evening..they had no liquid so I had to get the sticky pack of 6 that you place where you see the ants mostly..
Wish me luck!!
I'll keep ye posted how it goes
That thing didn't work for me either but actually nothing worked for me, ant rid, borax, vinegar, cinnamon, clove, petrol... Last year when DS was still a baby, i had to put him on a swing and used double sided sticky tape on the stand so they couldn't get to him. I also used chalk to draw thick lines on bed and cot legs. This year we hired a guy to come, he put up some traps with the liquid i guess its ant rid. I have called him to come back 3 times, still have them in the house. Hope the ants in your house are not as stubborn as ours. Good luck!
I spray lynx deodorant on my ants. Done so for years and it hasn't failed me yet.
It may sound strange but artificial sweetener powder (such as equal) kills them as well it's also something they take back to their nests which potentially kills more.
I have a thick line of talcum powder outside our doors and so far that's stopped them coming in there.
