I use the Mule Team Borax and honey mixed about 50/50 and microwaved until fully dissolved. I just drizzled some around the nest entrance. Took a couple days before I noticed a difference. They either moved away or died, but they are gone.

We go down to LAKEWOOD RESORTS in Myrtle Beach SC just about every late Sep or early Oct for mini family reunion. That place is alive with those small what I call sand ants.

I have done all the things you are suppose to do around the tires and anything that touches the camper coming up from the ground.

We usually make our five day visit without too many problems.

Most of the time when we leave LAKEWOOD we go the high country route back to Virginia which puts us spending a coupe of night in the Smoky Mtns ELKMONT Camp. There is no telling how many thousands of these small sand ants we have transported over the years from SC to TN haha...

Better to unload them in TN then VA I guess...

We've used the terro traps at home and they work great. Boric acid mixed with water might also have worked just fine (since it's the same stuff) but due to having little kids and a dog I didn't want to spray everywhere. Literally saw a line of ants going to and from the Terro trap for hours, then the next day they were all gone.

I also used a pre mixed sprayer. Spray all around the campsite as well before we set up if possible. Then spray all the entrance ways. Does anyone have a problem with lady Bugs? We live in south Georgia and they have swarmed here twice in the past two months. They get in all the openings. They get in my barn and in the 5th wheeler, but not the house. There is something about the 5 wheel color that seems to attract them. They get in by the 1,000's but die in a day or two. Just a big mess vacuuming them out!!!!!

I had a problem a few weeks ago. I kept being awakened out of my sleep by something inside my sweats crawling on my leg. I figured it was an ant, but couldn't find anything when I tried to feel for it. After about three repeat episodes, I went into the bathroom and removed the sweats. When I turned the leg inside out, one of those ladybugs fell onto the floor with a thud. Sleep went uninterrupted after that.

On the Boric Acid mixed with water how much do you mix per gallon of water we have ants out by our wood pile every year and I would like to try this.

For spray, I like Demand CS. Its the only thing I have found tough enough to kill even stink bugs and Carpenter bees. On the inside, I put out Terro liquid on cardboard.
