:) Think he used this stuff.
:) If memory serves me correctly, he's in san jose, ca. In the late summer,
:) early fall, the argentina ants invade homes. It's also really difficult to
:) kill one of their colonies, because they can easily have multiple queens in
:) a single colony.
The active in that is boric acid, so as long as they feed on it it will
slowly kill the ants...in large colony ants like argentine, a build up
of BA can cause then to split the colony due to its repellency so it's
not always the best to use at times, but as long as they are eating
to email....get rid of the BUGS
