Diazanon was banned here that had the good ingredient, if that is what your talking about middie. The stuff is awesome, but, we can't get it anymore. The new stuff isn't as good.
I WILL try the basil and parsley.

I have heard that this works, diatamacious earth. I have a degree in horticulure but it's been years since I've practiced natural pesticides, so just to be safe, you should call your local cooperative extension service to ask what they suggest.

If memory serves me, I dont think diazinon granules are safe for pets.

I have to say my dogs had no interest it getting near poisoned ant hills/colonies, and I poisoned quite a few in Florda. I played it save by putting some chicken wire (or something similar) over the area, but they weren't even interested.

The powder was too, but, quick to go. I would just have to keep them away for a day and that was all. Granules on the other hand, stay around too long.

You need a 6 pack of beer and a tiny television set. Once you attract a bunch of Uncles sitting around drinking beer and watching the game, the Ants will leave on their own.

I'll just say that one of them is a very well know site. Can't say more than that, or I would be in trouble
