    Currently waging a war of extermination on an army of flying sugar ants. Fockers invading my room. On the 2nd floor nonetheless.

    Had to get serious about the ants. I was using some citrus cleaner on them, but they kept coming in.

    So now we have, salt lines, bait traps, and a can of raid. I will defeat them!

    Will they eat Terro? That's what I use to exterminate them indoors and sometimes even outdoors. Outside I dump a gas/oil mix on them as well... it really makes em mad.

    try...

    Sprinkle some powdered borax around the sills and windows,and any place they are sneaking in..I've had some pretty bad ant invasions in our house in the past,but since I poured "20 Mule Team" Powdered Borax around,they have not yet returned..even big carpenter ants..since we have cats,I don't want to use poison or pest sprays..ants HATE borax,it clogs their lungs,and dries out their exoskeloten and they dehydrate rapidly and croak!..:D

    I've never seen flying sugar ants. I find them more entertaining than anything...
