Killing Ants

How to get rid of ants? There are many ways to get rid of ants. Ant bait stations, diatomaceous earth and ant poisons. Killing ants and controlling ants may take some patience. I have found for most ant species that diatamatious earth works best. It is a powder that the ants can carry back to the ant nest and possibly kill the queen ant. I usually spread diatomaceous earth dust on ant trails and around the ant mount or entrance on a dry day. Liquid ant control products also work well. If you think you have a carpenter ant problem this is also effective ant control. What do carpenter ants look like? Carpenter ants look like much larger common sugar ants and are generally black or dark brown.
