I have ants in one of my worm bins and I have been meaning to answer the other thread but I thought I would give it a few more days.
The formula supplied from KEF. Worked out to be a syrup and dries out to be a powder. The ant numbers are about the same but they are all walking about with dead ants in there mouths. I presume the formula works but not 100% sure yet. More time needed as its only been two days.
I say more time is needed because I poured boiling water on some, in a localized area a few days before (about 4 square inches). These could be the dead ones. Only time will tell.
I don't have loads ( about 20 on top) but it is obvious that there is a nest in the heap somewhere. The compost heap is only 1m cubed and about a ton in weight. First time I have had them in a outside worm bin.
I would rather they move on .
