    I gave that a try and Melted my Plastic Vac Canister.

    Where did I go wrong ?

    Now I have no way to repeat.

    Guess I will have to drink a bunch of beer and piss on it.

    I have tried boiling hot water into it, but no use. So I decided to use a repeller now to finally get rid of them, thankfully it worked

    We have sugar and protein ants here in California. I use cinnamon. they don't like the smell or whatever, and they leave. I also have a rodinator (www.rodenator.com) for the gophers. oxy/acetylene ignited down the hole works well to "sizzle" them.
    Did I mention 100% organic?

    Are them the ones that you can buy that are chocolate coated ?

    They sell them next to the chocolate coated raisins and roaches.

    I've got two ant hills on my lawn but I don't remove nor disturb them. They say it's will result to curse! Great thing, on the corner, so you will hardly notice them.

    I remembered my aunt who used to tell us not to disturb ant hill as they house spirits and anyone who destroys them will get punishment from those little humans that lives inside! lol
