I bought a house in Autumn and in Spring, multiple ant colonies woke up went to work. They were everywhere. It was an ant onslaught!
I tried other stuff, but I couldn't tell if I was suppressing/chasing the ants around the yard, so I gave this stuff a try because of the great reviews and I am now a confirmed believer.
I filled a shot glass and sprinkled the granules on an active mound and the ants were like, "Derp derp derp... I'm an ant walking around... derp derp derp... Whoa! What's this stuff?!" And they grabbed the granules and RAN back to the nest. Right then, right there! They were sooo excited! They were like "GUYS! GUYS! LOOK WHAT I FOUND!"
Then it was game on...
I grabbed a beverage and the big container and went on a mission to sprinkle Amdro on all the ant trails I could see and it was the same result from the ants: "Whoa! Everybody needs to see this." And they'd grab the poison and run.
After I got done treating the ant trails I could see, I went around and sprinkled Amdro on places I had seen ants hunting before and lo and behold, not 10 seconds after dropping grains on what looked like ant-free concrete, some of the granules started to move. The ants had come in from the edge of the concrete, grabbed the Amdro and RAN for their nest. I sipped my beverage and watched the ants make their way home and sprinkled more when I found their hideout, which was concealed in a gap in the pathway. Ants in the grass came in to grab the stuff. Ants in the nest came out to grab the stuff.
I went back to the original mound where I sprinkled this stuff and the ants were SWARMING to get the Amdro. It was like, "ALL HANDS ON DECK! RECOVER THE GOLD GRAINS FROM HEAVEN!" So amazing.
That was yesterday. Today, the ant activity is a fraction of 1% of what I saw yesterday. There are some ants here and there, but the major ant infestations I saw yesterday are gone. It's like I'm looking at survivors wandering through the devastation of Antpocalypse wondering, "What happened?? What went wrong?" I'm hoping the rest of the ants are in their burrows, happily munching on the Amdro and feeding it to their queens as fast as she can chomp it down. From the other reviews, I'm guessing that's exactly what going on.
I'm going to grab another couple containers of this stuff and conduct pre-emptive area denial operations out to the perimeter of my property and probably over the fence to some of the overgrown areas of my neighbors' yards.
In case you're wondering, I had my chemist wife take look at the active ingredient and she says it's an analogue of boric acid, but without the ant-equivalent of a bitter taste. From what I've seen, I'm a believer. The ants act like it's the first time they've had bacon.
We raked back the mulch outside of the kitchen area and scraped out a 12 inch deep shallow trench close to the foundation all along the kitchen side and around the corner. We sprinkled the Amdro ant block liberally. The ants disappeared much quicker than we thought. More importantly, they did not return. We will gladly use this again when the ants return next summer.
This was my first time using amdro and I will not use another brand again. This did the trick and I actually put too much down. It didn’t take a lot for these ants to be eliminated. Just sprinkle a little around the mound or where the ants are if you can’t find their home and they’ll take it back, and be gone for good shortly after. Now there are vacant mounds of what used to be a fire infested grass.
Nevermind this sh*t wore off fast. It did work but it was a temporary solution
There are different types of ants, different products work with different species. My house borders a large wooded area with a lot of critters. Over the past year we had what seemed to be an ant invasion, different species. This and the red ant Amdro bait products took care of it. These days, every two weeks or so, I still walk around the 1/2 acre surrounding the property and sprinkle this and the red ant version on any tiny ant hill I see. The ones that occasionally pop up are about 100 feet from the house, are very small and tend to pop up at the border of the wooded area I was talking about.
Got it yesterday and spread it around the house perimeter and watched the fun. The ants greedily ran off with this stuff...then there were no more ants or the ants that were left over just ate the dead ants!!!! or they just moved over about 4' away. I counted 4 places where they 'moved' and spread more of this stuff for them to feast on. Redid those areas today.
Last night there were no more ant sandwich making parties...or bathroom sink parties.....or little stinkers biting me in my bed!!!! Guess this stuff works or they found another willing host to pester? I think they are all deader than a doornail now!!! This stuff works or I'd be madder than a wet hen having spent this much money on ant food. Those partying ants would just laugh at ant spray.... and keep on keeping on.....NO MORE ant parties with this Amdro stuff!!!! Yes, I am a party pooper!!! LOL
