The chemicals don't work on ants. Put out dry molasses and apply the new DE product.

Liquid molasses is what it is. You can buy a gallon for about a dollar in bulk at a farm and ranch co-op. Dry molasses is made from rice hulls and molasses. To make 50 pounds they will take 35 pounds of trash rice hulls and mix in 15 pounds ($1.00) of molasses.
