When we have a problem with ants, usually the small black ones, we have a simple fix to wipe them out. Get some Borax powered laundry detergent, a little powered sugar, some water, and some very small containers. We use the lids off of soda bottles. Mix 1 part Borax, 3 parts powered sugar and enough water to make it like syrup. Place it in the bottle tops and set a few around the camper, or wherever the ant's are. Has always worked great for us. Pretty good article here on some test http://thegardeningcook.com/testing-borax-ant-killer-remedies/
So the ants are attracted to that more than what's in your camper?
Donn0128, they're the little black ones like I find making a nest around my driveway at home.
Those of you that suggested the Home Defense and Terro, would you suggest doing both, with the Terro first since they will take it back and then maybe a few days later the Home Defense?
I will get some Commet and keep it in the camper. Does anyone know how/why it keeps them away? I should put it around the tires, water hose, etc. (anything that touches the ground and they can climb up), right?
Thanks for all the help so far.
We went camping a month or so ago and it appears that somehow ants got into our trailer. We just returned from another week long trip, killed many ants during it and set ant traps out when we got to camp (in the trailer).
I haven't had a chance since we got home today to see where they might be coming from, but does anyone have suggestions on where to check first or how they might be getting in? We have never had any problems in the three or four previous years of camping with them inside the trailer.
Thanks in advance.
