Sorry Carol, but we will kill them without mercy. They have completely decimated a number of our plants, including trees. They are not an endangered species, rest assured. We only apply the Patron pellets when the hole is active. The ants actually drop their leaf pieces for the more attractive pellets. The moisture in the hole does the trick of turning the pellets into a poisonous gas without our having to add water. It has never failed us when we have applied while the ants are actively using the hole. Sounds like the other method works too, but it might be a little harder to gauge the results your way.
