There's a home repair radio show around here (Portland, Oregon) where a guy
touts a dry mixture, 1/3 each by volume, of boraxo, baker's yeast and
powdered confectioners sugar, well mixed . Says to put it on small plastic
tops from things like a Planters nuts can in areas where the ants appear.
Guy claims that the sugar and to a certain extent the yeast attract the
critters who march through the stuff and bring the sugar and yeast and borax
back to the nests / colonies /
hives whatever. The ants eat the east which
with a little moisture expands the yeast and kills the ants, as does the
boraxx on their bodies.
