AntsA very hungry ant

Battling ants is an ongoing, never ending challenge to the RVer.

Thereís a product called Terro thatís commercially available.  Ants eat the mixture and take it back to their nest.  At the nest they feed the mixture to the other ants.  It then affects them and wipes out the whole nest.

You can make your own mixture:

  • 1 teaspoon of boric acid powder (any pharmacy) A very ugly ant

  • ľ cup of sugar (or use confectioner's sugar, brown sugar, honey, molasses or other ant food)

  • 2 cups of hot water (plus or minus)

I make small trays using aluminum foil to hold the mixture.

If the ants arenít gone in a day or two, add more boric acid.  If theyíre dying at the source, add less powder. Works great!
