I have an ant problem, I wouldn't consider it to be a large problem, but it's a problem nonetheless.

I've tried large amounts of cinnamon to no prevail. I've tried ant traps also with no success.

How safe is granular terro ant killer around beehives?

I understand I need to keep it away from the hive itself and be careful of where I fill up my feeders in the area (don't want to attract bees to a deadly poison), but overall can they be used safely if precautionary measures are taken?

I've also heard that mint leaves inside the hive may repel ants. Any one have success with that?
