Hi All

Nippon was placed on kitchen floor Thursday night. My Son and I watched in amazement as the line of Ants started coming out of a tiny hole in the skirting board next to the back door taking the bate and returning back through the hole. We were feeling very guilty. Half an hour later a steady stream started coming through the hole. Last night there was not so many. The instructions said to leave it down for 7 to 10 days. It is sad having to do this but hearing of the distressing problem the Ants have caused for some of you, it is a problem that I need to deal with. I shall keep you all posted. Thank you All again.

Thank you for all the help, hints and tips. They were garden ants that came in last year. My neighbour did put the powder right around our houses and they did move away. Obviously they are in here somewhere and hopefully all these suggestions are going to work. I do not like harming anything but I need to nip this in the bud . My Husband found 8 this morning in the kitchen. Not nice!!! Thank you all so much. I will keep you posted on how It goes.

Yes its just nature poor things. I am not usually obsessive with my cleaning but its not nice seeing them crawling along benches etc. Have not seen any today - so far! My order for Nippon has been dispatched. So hope it solves the problem. Thanks.

Cupboards and floors have been scrubbed with bleach. I will have the cleanest floor in the street. Thank you.

Yes we have had a lot of flooding and the garden is waterlogged. I have already placed an order for Nippon. Thank you.

Thanks very much to both of you. It didn't cross my mind they could be living in the house, it makes sense now. I will be thoroughly cleaning my cupboards out tomorrow and purchase ant killer liquid ASAP. Many many thanks for the quick replies too.

Hello I was wondering if anyone else is having the same problem with Ants? Already they have started coming in to our house. We had thousands last summer. Our neighbour last year had sprinkled powder around the house and pipes etc. We try to do everything as environmentally friendly as possible. We have created a small wildlife garden. All the surrounding gardens to us have tidy graveled, paved, decked gardens. We used to have hedgehogs using the hog box, producing babies, feeding in our garden almost every year. Sadly we have not had one for the last two year. Fortunately and proudly we have great variety of regular birds and at least 30 sparrows. Also small mice which we try to keep quiet about, SHH, they are very entertaining and clever. We have three - 5 year old gold fish in our small pound a resident frog in our garden. My concern is that some people may say I am causing the Ant problem. Any good suggestions will be most welcome to solve this Ant problem before the weather gets warmer, but obviously as environmentally and kindly as possible. Before I get in to trouble!!! Many thanks.

Thank you so much I will do that. Yes it is a small apple tree and it does seem like they "the aphids" are getting the better of my tree. I appreciate your reply.

Thank you.
