They soon gather around and start taking the stuff back to the nest and it appears to kill them all off. I used to have a big ant problem in the small apartment building that I have, but now we rarely see any at all.

    As I said, I have only seen the product at Playero, but I am sure it is sold in other places as well.
    be careful with some of those Chinese insect cures. they are seriously poisonous, to humans. there is this thing called Chinese chalk, which you use to mark lines on surfaces. insects crawl over the lines, and it is curtains. you can no longer buy that stuff in countries like the USA. be careful what you buy.

    Help.  Thanks in advance.
    What you need is Terro liquid ant killer. Works especially well for the small "sugar ants". Put several drops in the middle of the trail as close as possible to where they are entering you apto. or where they are going into the wall. They'll eat this stuff like it's a giant luau and take it back to the nest where they feed it to the queen. Works great. I've been using it for years.

    diatomaceous earth and Boric acid Mix together and spread very thin line around all walls that face outside, back of cupboards, under stove and fridge etc It is harmless to people and pets, takes a few days to do it's job but once the ants are tracking through it say goodbye

    I would usually run when I see China mentioned anywhere on any product.

    I've nerver seen it down here. You'd have to have a friend bring it down for you or order it through Amazon and have it sent via BM Cargo or EPS acct(or one of many others). You only need a little to do the job. I still have some left from a 2oz bottle I bought several years ago.

    Those little ants love this stuff and they will be gone in two days max. It contains boric acid which was mentioned in another post. If you have a dog or a cat you wouldn't want to put it on the floor where they could get at it, but someplace like around the windows sills it's no problem at all.

    Hormigas (or-ME-gaz) are ants, in tropics you can't stop them ever.  Try powdered cinnamon.

    Yep. We have an ant problem occasionally. We finally figured out it only happens when we're not thoroughly cleaning up all food particles.
