How to get rid of ANTS??!
« on: May 04, 2015, 01:03:53 PM »
Help!
My house is infested with Ants I have never had it yet!
I have tried already RAID Spray, Combat Traps, Terro liquid.
They all helped but looks like the Ants are not interested in capitulating!
As many as I kill double come back!
Anyone experience?
TIA!

Out side your house:  sweep away all the dirt, soil, leaves.  Nothing should be against the house and the area near it.  You may see cracks in the area where the house joins the floor.  Get a spray that's meant for outside. Like the one shown above.  I used Raid Bug Barrier Indoor/Outdoor. Spray into the crack, if there is one, and all around the base of the house.  Especially areas corresponding to where you have infestation inside.
Also use something indoors.  I used discs from combat.
Also be meticulous about sweeping and washing counters in infested areas.


Good luck.  It WILL pass.
