The new house has had some nice looking carpenter ants :frown: all the sudden and I'm going to call the bug man but I have heard that putting crushed shell stuff (Im not even going to try to spell it) for pool filters around the house . It is suppost to cut the ants as they walk through it and they bleed to death. Its also safe for us ,little ones and the furry ones :cool:
Has anyone ever done this and if so does it work ?

Look for this stuff ... http://www.terro.com/ ... Buy the liquid - it's a boric acid sugar syrup. Few drops on a cardboard tab. Sugar attracts them the boric kills them (slowly) Ants being social animals will feed each other and tell others where to find the feast. Ultimately the whole colony is killed. And being such a small dose it's nearly harmless to anything else (2 or 4 footed)
