I have taken notice since i have gotten into beekeeping that there is always gonna be ants. So far i have cleaned them off the inner board, i have sprinkled Ground cinnamin all over the place numerous of times, i have applied vaseline along the sides of the block but these ants are persistent and will not give up. At first i had black ants, now there is then big red ants and i need to find a drench thats safe, i need to do something. So what i would like to know is: What drench or what product can i purchase locally either from Lowes or perhaps a lawn & garden shop or where ever it might be so i can get ahead of these ants????....i know about the guardstar but i think thats just way too much money and there has to be something out there on the market other then at beekeeping store that a beekeeper uses to control ants and other pests around the hives and wont harm the bees!
