Warning!If you have small children or pets, then make sure that a "treat" is in the reach of their location.

second place is occupied by Chinese crayons.Chalk Circle exit site (windows, doors, air vents, etc.) ants.

Third place belongs spray Raid.Spray the exit site of ants, and after a few days, they have to leave.Pleasant smell and efficiency - these are the advantages of this means!

fourth place in the list is divided powder and aerosol Expel Faratsid (Faracid).Expel can be used equally well indoors and on site.It is effective also in the form of powder (pour a thin layer at the rate of 10g. 1 sqm along favorite routes ants) and an aqueous solution (100g of powder to 5 liters of water given that m is 1, 1 L).The result was not long in coming - the full annihilation of 1-2 days.

Important!Do not use near water resources and wells (distance should be at least 5-10 meters).Keep tools you need in a closed form of the reach of children.After applying the powder does not allow children to play in the treated areas near the nests.


Faratsid acts as the pharaohs ant, and other species that live in the house or on site.Producing a tool in the form of microcapsules.Proceed starts within 12 hours.

specifically for use on the site, was created Glotoks powder (Glotox).This drug is poorly soluble, so it does not need to be refilled if held rain.
of the most effective folk remedies is the use of fresh leaves of tomatoes (it is believed that they can not stand the smell of ants, therefore, leaves need to be expanded in the most visited places of insects), cinnamon (pour "border", through which the ants will not move, for example, aroundbeds), vinegar (wipe with a cloth soaked in vinegar, place outputs ants), honey (stick to the surface, there's something you take them and "cushy").If the ants have chosen your wardrobe, you can put in it a moldy lemon, say that helps.

Another original recipe: Take a piece of the old "rusty" fat and anoint them places where insects (especially in the bath, sink).

But all these efforts will be in vain if you do not destroy all of its garden pests (aphids, etc.), which feed on ants.If an ant hill under a tree, the note is not affected whether it?If the pests for some reason do not want to fight (tired, tired, etc.), and the coexistence of ants becomes unbearable, then destroy an anthill - ants only after that will be gone forever.Even my six-legged female, these workers are able to replace!
