Rhaaaaa I Am Infested By Foolish Ants!

Thu Sep 21, 2006 3:01 pm

It appears I cannot leave food out for less than a few minutes without some pesky ants attempting to partake of it.

How can I get rid of the foolish creatures ?

      I thought I was the only one who thinks like that.

Good luck with your ant problem!

On a serious note, I use a pesticide called Demon. Its kinda hard to find 'round here, as its pretty nasty stuff, but we spray once every two months and are relatively bug free.

Wait - YOU are infested by ants?  Wow!
Or your place? This will make quite a difference for the recommended treatment... Big grin

But anyway, you say they are foolish, so it shouldn't be hard to trick them out of the house... Big grin

Why are they foolish? Ants are one of the most successful groups of insects on the planet.

You, however, are not. Those ants are just going about their business, whilst you continue to spam up A.Net with crazy threads containing a childish over repeated phrase.

So, the question should be...

1. Sprinkle some talcum powder (or any fragrant powdery substance) around the area - it confuses the ants
2. Find the source of the ants and seal that hole/crack in the floor. Spray a little pesticide before you seal the crack. Make sure you use a proper cement like substance to seal the crack - and do a thorough job. Ants in BLR manage to bite into a thin layer of white cement without much of problem! Much better with a thicker layer.
3. Make sure you don't leave any food spilt around. But that does not matter too much, since they seem to be already there.
4. Look for some professional pest control - but it's rarely effective in the case of ants.
5. Use a vacuum cleaner to suck out the ants, and spray a wee bit of pesticide into the vacuum at the end of the job!
Incredible India!

I'd suggest that you get a troop of ant eaters to run over your place.

Could turn it into a succesful business Wink
