In Reply to: RE: What's The Best Way To Exterminate Brown Ants From My Kitchen? posted by Newey on April 18, 2017 at 19:28:25
I just look for the trail and spray it down with acid based sanitizer that I use for my beer making equipment. It kills the ants and removes whatever chemical scent that is left on the trail. While it kills the ants it is otherwise non-toxic and is not meant to be rinsed from the beer equipment before use (that would defeat the purpose).
Just using the sanitizer on my counters on occasion helps too as there is nothing for the ants to find. And it really does sanitize everything. Five Star StarSan is the product name, available at any home brew supply shop.
That's interesting. Often, if we have a sudden mass invasion and I haven't got anything else handy, I spray the marauders with Windex which seems to scatter them. A half hour later, nothing is left, not even the bodies...do ants take their dead?
It only works for a day or less though.
And eat them (do not waste protein!).
That's why the one you put up is so good.
Years ago we had a real termite invasion in a house I just bought.
They were everywhere - in the floors, some of the walls, door frames, etc.
A pest guy came and used a powder puffer and injected reddy orange arsenic dust into the timberwork in several places around the house.
He said not to touch it for a week or two and that the termites would eat it and die, that the other worker termites would take the dead back and eat them and die etc etc.
I never saw a termite in there again.
