Re: How far to put powdered ant poison?

I use Amdro granules on the ground, around most of my hives. It hasn't caused any noticeable problems for the bees. It apparently causes much more of a problem for the ants, since they disappear soon after application, and don't return, usually, until the following year.

+1 on the Amdro. I put a circle around my house and a circle around the beehives each spring. No ants to speak of for the rest of the season.
