The ANTS have INVADED
    #1928033 - 09/18/03 06:28 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I have ants at this place. They seemed to make it into my dark incubator and are running up and down my 2 pint honey jars. There's a good baker's dozen but I suspect more will follow. What can/ should I do?

Oh yeah. I don't just want to spray RAID because I don't think the rest of the stuff in the incubator will like it.

what if you don't have any amonia? do you think it would be safe if I sprayed the outsides of the incubator and the ground area around it then just physically remove the ants off of the jars?

should do...and spraying around your incubator lightly shouldn't hurt

the more of the trail you remove the less likely they will find the same spot again

Find where the ants are enting the house/room/apt and insecticide their entry points. Just follow them, small crumbs of food will do it. You can even roach bomb your room (remove all shroom setup) let it rip, 4hrs later you air the room for 2hrs and it will be insect free for 90 days at least. Many pot growers do that between crop cycles and believe me, insect pests are shockers in that caper.

Why not get some of the "ant hotel" things and put at leat 1 were ther enering the chamber and then also wherever you might see a their trial. The over abundance of goodies is bound to distract them. :wink:
