    Ants How To Get Rid Of Them?

    Hi;
    I posted earlier a post on how to get rid of ants,fire ants ect.
    The reference i used was from Daves garden forum.
    The post listed aspertame a man made no sugar sweetener kills ants.
    After thinking about this post on Daves garden forum i am in doubt about this beeing a fact or truth about aspertame artificial sweetener.
    I need to test this out on the ants around my place this spring to see for my self,for me spring is four month away till i can test.
    Can any of you test out aspertame on the ants around your place so we can find out if aspertame does or does not kill ants.
    put a half teaspoon on a ant hill and dampen a little.
    This is said to work on fire ants and a few other ants.
    If you test this out please post your result of your test.

    John,

    Your post has good timing The fire ants have made numerous huge mounds in my yard. I even have some of Kathy's hardy hibiscus seedlings with mounds covering the roots.

    I will give this a try tomorrow, and we will see if it works.

    Thank you so much for reminding me of that!
