Got ants here in the kitchen.
As you can see. And 1 of the tricks I’ve found, if there’s
only 1 or 2 ants it’s really hard to find where they are coming from, you spray them
it does not do any good. So what I do is I put some sugar or such and
when a whole lot accumulate. And they establish an ant trail, then I follow
the ant trail back to the nest. Here’s a little trick: If the trail is too
sparse to follow, blow on the group a little or just breath on them and they will start
scurrying back to the nest in a solid line. Makes it a lot easier to follow. Watch.
(Sound of light breath) And there they go.
They go off streaming in a solid line. Here they are, let’s follow them.
Looping back around. Go through here, don’t know if you can see
them in the shadows. Up the wall.
Keep them in focus. Up the wall, up the wall.
Where they get on this brown wood where you can’t see them. They are pretty smart.
Up here. Can’t see them very well.
You can see them crossing here. If you follow them they go back in that corner.
They go up inside, right in that little hole. I’ve got 2 things I need to do.
Spray them and patch that hole. If you leave the sugar out after your remediation
attempts, you can see if you were successful.
I’ve tried spraying once and they are still coming back very strong.
This is several hours later. Obviously where I sprayed is not the key nest.
I need to go back and try again. I’ve done a second remediation and as you
can see the number of ants has come down seriously. So I think I got the nest.
That’s all there is to it, a couple tricks to hunt down ant nests.
Hope you found it interesting.
