Went to WallyWorld and found 20 Mule Team Borax laundry detergent helper. Must not have enough Borax in it because the line of ants I covered seem to be enjoying the "snow". After an hour, they have not slowed a bit.

try this. boil about a pint of water. While it is boiling hot mix in a cup of sugar so that it completely dissolves. add a couple of drops of dish washing liquid. When it cools put that in a 2 litre bottle and then leave the cap off and set it near the trail of ants.

I am not saying for sure this will work. But I live in the country and my friend suggested making a wasp trap similar to this. a few days after I put the trap out there were not many wasps in it but it was black with ants. the ants climbed up a support post on my porch, then over to the string holding the trap to the ceiling and into the bottle. The nice thing about this is that there is nothing poisonous involved so even if something like pets or children get at it you dont have to worry. I had to spray a couple of times a year to keep ants out of the kitchen After I put this trap up they all went to the sugar water.

X2 on D.E.

I do a perimeter spray with Home Defense, around tires, jacks and hoses. A little vaseline on cords and hoses discourage their use as an access point.

Food Grade D.E. is nontoxic and it mixes into the ground and continues to work. It works on any insect with an exoskeleton. Tractor Supply, Amazon, Vet supply.
It should be more acceptable than borax, comet, ajax, etc.to campground owners and gov. parks.

I have seen good results with the Terro Granules outside and inside the house but have not used it around the MH.
