    Yeah, not the little ones. im talking the bigguns. like about half a fingernail size. Ive tried the dirt lookin stuff but they just start throwing it back at me...i can almost hear them laugh at me.:haha: i was thinking gas, so if it didnt work fire is always a good thing.

    what are your recomendations?

    I poured some gas on the dirt where I had ant problems. Not enough to cause any environmental problems, but enough to shut down the colony.

    I'm not sure if it killed the ones way down in the dirt or if they lived and are moving to fresh dirt. Maybe the ant stakes will kill them all for good?

    Ortho Diazinon

    It's very effective... and it's in concentrate so you can mix it as weak or strong as you want. I use it for Hobo Spider and Beetle control and it works wonders. The only downside is that you need a dedicated garden sprayer for it.

    Just make sure you wear gloves & a mask, and keep the pets & kids in for a while... that sh!t's potent! :eek1:

    I second Diazinon. Good stuff. Chemical warfare at its best:D

    I use it for ants and Hobo spiders too. Man I hate Hobo spiders they are totally evil and require the full specturm of WMDs.

    They are pure evil. Black Widows are nothing in comparison..... Hobos are nearly as poisonous and are highly agressive..... They'll chase you down and bite you. A black widow will only bite you if you get tangled in its web.

    I put about 4 gallons of Diazinon (after dilution) through my sprayer each year and so far I've only seen them in 1 corner of my basement and outside.

    Try some Orthene powder. Just sprinkle it on and the colony will die away. We have the dreaded fire ants :mad: and it works on them very well.
