Sugar Ants :: How to get Rid of Them

Francesca Cangialosi
Anybody know how to permanately get rid of sugar ants? The little suckers are driving me crazy. I don't see them for two or three days and then BAM! They're back.
Little shits.
I must need to get out the heavy duty spray but hate to to do it because they're on the kitchen counter near the sink. Prepping food is going to be on the island when I get it. Otherwise I'm would have to prep food on that conter and I don't like having to spray pesticides where I cook. I wonder if ant baits would work?

Nancy Denker I'm forgetting exactly what I did, but I think we mixed honey and water and left it in a dish. They came in and could not get out.

Tawn Head If you stick a dryer sheet in your belt loop of your insects will bite you!

Patty Vandever If you can find their hole or where they are coming in, get Amdro. It's little pellets that you sprinkle around the hole and they take it down inside and it kills the whole colony.

Sharon Dobson just open a pack of Splenda or Equal and put it on your counter. They will eat them and die. Oh that's one of the reasons I don't use artificial sweeteners.

Francesca Cangialosi All good suggestions...I will try them all. My son said to use a perfume because it covers up their scent.

Desarae Guilez Guthrie Vinegar clears their scent trail but there are lots of good natural recipes on the Internet.... I had to look too recently. But there are traps to set that will cause ants to take to their colony & kill them all

Screwloose Lautrec bomb the attic with 'raid fumigator' makes a smoke. they travel along the wires and pipes up there. peppermint & spearmint oil are ant repellants. home depot sells stuff called Terro. a clear liquid the consistency of honey. always worked for me. cut small pieces of thin cardboard and put a few drops on each and put them in their patch. they eat it and take it back to the nest

Char Haller I have "crazy" ants. Darker, thinner, longer and run like 'crazy'. I've treated the foundation of my house with Sevin dust. Put some of the powder in an old sock or knee high stocking. Use it like a powder puff along the entire outer wall, especially along trails and itty-bitty holes when they enter/exit. I do that 2-3x per year. Seems to keep them out.
