    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.
