A bad year for Ants
June 13, 2017 5:25am CST
We are having a dry summer so far in the UK and this means we are getting lots of ants. There are several nests in our back garden and we are starting to get them indoors. Do you have trouble with Ants where you live, and how do you get rid of them?

Here in Virginia, we haven't had any ant problems (yet), but my friend had a ton of problems with them while he was still living in Florida. Fire ants were the problem, and they weren't all in the ant hills in his yard. The air conditioner repairman discovered a colony in his outside air conditioner unit. So, my friend had to call an exterminator before he could get his air conditioner repaired. The same thing happened the next year.

I read a response to a similar problem recently where the member suggested placing a thin line of cornmeal along the path the ants are using. If they eat it, they can't digest it, and they starve. The biggest plus is, no harsh pesticides. Here is an article from LifeHack about it.
