Well, I've got 6 or 8 ant hills in my driveway with Truvia sprinkled around the hole. I'll let you know if I see a decline in ant numbers.
Thanks Yvonne, keep us posted.
The pest control came today. I had them treat the front yard and set out bait boxes for rats. We saw a rat in the garage and also had a watermelon in the garage. That something started eating 😖
Also a rodent climbed on top of the fuel tank on are van. Chewed a hole in a EVAP hose. No fuel goes thru the hole, just vapors. But the check engine light stayed on. Took to the dealership to get fixed.

How ironic, a chemical used to get humans off sugar offs roaches. Somehow, I don't find that comforting. Same with the one that kills fire ants. But I'm all for getting rid of the 2 bugs. Fire ant bites are really painful!!
Thanks my research is over!

I put Truvia all around the outside edges of all the ant hills in my driveway. They completely ignored it, going about their business of excavating the holes and depositing the dirt over the truvia.

It's no wonder they keep living through everything. They're too smart for our own good. Maybe put it in the top hole.
