Hi,

Been sometime since I last posted. Recently been engaged in a small family construction project.

As the title of the thread suggest, I need to get rid of ants, a lot of them. I would have left them alone but following their tracks I see them going in cracks, and other spaces that may lead to the ceiling and other places I can't go. I didn't took any photos but they're the little red ones that do bite if you accidentally caught one.

I used Hometrek for the soil treatment during the foundation process but these ants are smart and are coming from adjacent walls. I have yet to find their main base of operations but seeing them crawling along walls towards my project is making me mad.

Any formulas, tips on how you guys go head to head against ants would make my life easier. :lolno:

Thanks!

Jojo

yup, as per experience its effective. Mixed with sugar to form a paste. I got mine from Alysons along G. Araneta for 240+/kg I think.
Your cutting tools is only as good as your sharpening system.

I tried. Some used automotive oil before and effective naman even for anays

Kaya Lang it's a a hazard and pollutes the environment/ and soil

Better try the baking soda approach next time:)

For the termicide treatment I used Hometrek and Solignum. Ang mga langgam sana ang gusto ko maalis, ang dami kasi.
