Usually at this time of year as the sun heats up the South side of our house the ants wakeup and I use some spray to create what can only be called an "ant Armageddon". I've been reading up a bit and found that the poison is not the best way as it does not kill the queen.
I'm trying the borax and sugar syrup method now and I've got about 20 ants licking at a dollop of syrup I put on a scrap of cardboard. I swear some of them are looking up at me and saying "bring it on dude!"
Does anybody have experience with this method? I'm wondering how long it will take to get results?
