    On my walk areas, I have ant hills. I have tried numerous things and to no avail I can't get rid of them. Has anyone dealt with these and have any success in ridding them? It is bad enough I got black ants in the house, let alone going outside and have these about every foot apart for 20 feet. These are really difficult.

    Mix 1/4 cup boric acid and 1/4 cup sugar and use that...it will work...some add grease left overs also fro the little sweet and grease eating ants and form little muffins for them to eat...:D

    sprinkle black pepper in or around the ant hills and see how long they stay away before the next rainfall
