I think those ants are amazing! We love watching them work but more so in the wild. I really hate to harm them but after 14 years of them devastating the gardens and us trying to poison them with many types of poison, we were shown the best way by Hector. Find their holes at night using a flashlight and mark them. Buy some Patron from Pollo then go to the holes in daytime and put a few tablespoons of the Patron pellets in the hole. Next add a cup of water and close the hole using your foot, push surounding dirt to close hole. Job done. The water-poison combo makes a gas that will go down to the nest-cave and wipe them out. We humans are mean and selfish but if you want nice gardens you have to protect your territory.
