What advise can you give for controlling large ants getting in hives. Location is Guatemala. They are larger than black carpenter ants I've experienced in the states.

The only thing that has worked for me has been wood ash on the inter cover. With carpenter ants. The reason why is that they don’t like the high acid that the ash makes. Just something to think on.

A little borax,syrup and pollen sub mixed.A little dab in a jar lying on its side with some holes in the lid just small enough that bees cant get in.It Wiped out all the ants in my yards.It got rid of all the sweet ants around my house also.Potted meat with borax got rid of my fire ants also.
