I have had very good luck making baits with whatever I see them
eating, 12 parts food, one part boric acid. Those ants dissapear and
the ones who come back don't eat that food. They got so specific they
would only eat Purina the dog had in his mouth (tasted the saliva I
guess) Then I baited that. Now I see an ant now and then but they
aren't eating anything.
We do have a particularly nasty ant here in Florida (the white foot
guys) that can throw multiple queens and when one queen dies there is
another one waiting to take over. We even have some ants that will
take in workers from another colony if their queen is dead.
I am sure ants will be feasting on the last mammal's bones when our
time is up.
You can probably get a few Horned Toads mail order.
Called the "Texas Ant-Eater," they live out of the way and gobble ants like
Scary looking critters, though. (About the size of a frog)
