    I've had really good results with Terro products. Had 3 huge mounds where I used to live and got rid of them fast. I used the powder form.

  3. I have used sevn dust with good success. Plus its cheap
     
  4. Sevin and similar pesticides only kill the ants that come in contact with it. To kill the colony, including the queen, you need a bait pesticide. There are many, but the only one I've used is Amdro. I used it on fire ant mounts in Fl. If I sprinkled it around an active mound in the morning, by late afternoon there was no sign of life. The Terro appears to work the same.
     
  5. As a kid I used a magnify glass and fire crackers! Still sounds like fun!

    ive only used terro "syrup" packs, man that stuff works!
     
  7. I will vouch for the Terro as well. Quite a while back we would get an attack of large black ants sometime around the 4th of July. We would put a couple of drops of the Terro on a piece of cardboard and let the ants feast on it. Within a day or so they would always disappear.
