:bash: Darn ants already out in full force around my place ,new mounds popping up daily and they really like the base of trees and ornamental grasses. I need some proven product recommendations to get rid of the problem!

I tried eco friendly stuff and they’d dry up then reappear a few feet away. When my son was little he got in them and they wore him out. I turned to diesel fuel and never looked back.

^^^^that's all I use^^^^ take a stick and poke holes deep in the mound and filler up. A match helps a bit too.

Ortho Orthene powder is what I've used since I bought my house back in 1996. It works every time and just takes about a spoonful on each mound.

Proven effective against scorpion nests as well.
