I am having problems with a very small black ant (looks like old sugar ant) that bites like a big red fire ant.
I have tried a couple ant killers with no effect and don't want anymore poison in the yard if I can keep from it.
They are all over the box and I have seem them team up to pull dead bees from the hivebody.
We have bad fire ant problems here in South GA. Tried the cinnamon - they thanked me and asked for more.
Mixed the borax with jelly in a pie pan and placed it near the hive. They completely covered it in no time and it really helped the situation.
If you know where the ant mounds are you can treat them directly with your ant poison of choice.
