Fields and woods, around us are very infested with ants. They are trying to invade my space. Answer, Borax. Mixed with sugar water, they eat, take it back home, die, and if I understand it correctly; the living eat the dead and die also? Anyway, the first go around, we saw a greatly reduced population around the outside. So a while ago I decided to make it more appealing, by sprinkling Borax liberally on the two halves of a Little Cutie Orange, along with a bit of brown sugar. And invited the ants to a feast. and they are coming, .....and going! Placed at the two corners of the porch and flower barrels.
