The Great White (Black Ant) Hunter

I did as instructed and put some peanut butter on a piece of tinfoil along with an ant bait. The idea is the ants will be attracted to the peanut butter and find the ant bait as well. So far it is working about as well as Norma's deer deterrents and that is not at all! I checked this morning and there was not one ant at either dining table (bait or peanut butter).

I may add a smear of jam to the peanut butter and see if that helps. Maybe I need a Tilly hat. That might help.


  1. Here's some bedtime reading for you:


  2. Great story! I too will prevail!

  3. Hi Croft.

    Dave and Andrew in GDL here.

    The best thing I have found to kill any kind of ant is Grants For Ants, a granulated poison that you sprinkle near but not on the nest. Ants are gone thereafter.

    Grants is difficult to find, however. I've tried many other brands, but none works nearly as well as Grants. True Value Hardware is where I usually am able to buy it.

    Let us know how it goes, please.

    Sorry to hear you're considering not visiting here this winter.
