Update. I'm excited. After trying borax and boracic acid, with various sweeteners, placing the little ant traps wherever, I noticed that they did not seem interested in food or water at all. They just came along in groups, randomly, and played like crazy , bumping into each other occasionally like little bumper cars. |
I had just got some fresh garlic,for the mosquito barrier. I put it down on the counter, and the ants all ran away! So even if they aren't hungry right now, but just like playing on my countertop, maybe they don't like the garlic smell. I don't mind it, so that's not a problem.
This just happened, sooooo, true scientist that I am, I'll wait to see how consistent these results are. Because, really, I don't want to kill them, just don't want to share my space with them.
