I have crazy ants both inside and out. Outside doesn't bother me, except they are right against the house. Also I understand that they can be damaging.

Inside they are driving me, well, crazy. first they were just in a couple of places. Now they are scattered everywhere and are moving in to the pantry. They love my cereal.

Is there something that will work for these ants? And HOW. I saw mention of a DE product, but don't know how to use it and if I should use it inside too. I have little kids, so have to be careful about that.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

There are ant baits with the active ingredient abamectin. These baits can provide good control and should be used for heavy infestations or when other bait is not effective. It can be applied in stations around foraging ants or broadcast around ant trails.

The new DE from Soil Mender is very effective on these ants partly because they move around so much. They help to get the DE on their bobies by moving around somuch in there crazy way.
