Hi Stick

Don't be alarmed but termites are of a higher order - you have done the damage to their nest not the rabble of disorganized mini black ants.

The little blacks are an enemy but one that is easily contained by the superior intellect of the termite/whit ant.

After the world is over the Termites and the Cockroaches will co-exist in peace ... because they are smarter and tougher than anything else .. including bonsai enthusiasts. :palm: :palm:

Cheers for fun David

ants are smart in the way that if there is a termite nest near their colony they will wipe them out depending how big the termite colony is, ants know theyre way and stick together unlike us humans fighting and not agreeing which doesnt do much really, if i had put the pot next to it without doing the termite killer it just wouldve taken longer

Hello all members,

I m killing black ant in my house everyone share the information please use this-:

Here's the way to dispose of ants at home:

This is the way to dispose of ants for all time.

1. Chalk

One of the home solutions for dispose of ants is to utilize chalk. Chalk contains calcium carbonate, which helps in warding off ants. Shower some powdered chalk in the territories that are the section purposes of ants or draw a line of chalk at the passage. With a specific end goal to keep ants of your home, draw chalk lines so these bugs don't enter. While it not clear with respect to why this line prevents the ants from coming inside, however it is doubtlessly compelling. Ensure you make the line in a way that is far from any tyke in the house.

2. Lemons

Press a lemon or place lemon peels in places from where the ants enter. You can likewise wash your floors with water that has a little lemon juice added to it. Ants obviously don't care for the scent of lemon squeeze so they will ward off. Anything sharp and unpleasant may ward off the ants, yet any sugar is ants' closest companion. So guarantee you don't keep anything sweet that may pull in the ants somehow or the other. Keep your kitchen piece completely spotless and put the peels in that spot.


3. Oranges

Oranges are same as lemons; they repel the ants from visiting your home. Make a glue of one glass warm water and a couple of orange peel, which will help in disposing of ants. Spread this glue around section purposes of ants and wipe it subsequently. You can likewise put orange peels on the kitchen chunk or wherever you figure these ants may enter from. It goes about as common obstacle for ants that may keep them as well as fend off them. Thus, convey the orange skins to some utilization and guarantee no ants visit your home any longer.

4. Pepper

Ants are really enamored with sugar yet they loathe pepper. Sprinkle pepper at the territories from where ants go into your home. This is will help disposing of ants. Cayenne pepper or dark pepper are detested by ants. You can likewise make an answer of pepper and water and shower it close to the contestant regions. The pepper wouldn't slaughter the ants yet unquestionably deflect them from coming back to your home. Ensure you clean the territory where you need to shower the pepper arrangement.

5. Salt

Spreading salt close alcoves and corners from where ants go into the house will help repelling ants. Table salt is truly outstanding and the least expensive approaches to dispose of ants normally. Utilize standard table salt not wellbeing boosting rock salt. You should simply to bubble water and include a lot of salt to it, mixing it until breaks down. Fill a shower container and splash where you think ants have a tendency to enter from.
