[NAFEX] tanglefoot-molasses

With regards to molasses, borax and peanut butter, my husband has been mixing up various combinations of borax and sugary substances (molasses and PB included).  He put the mixture in a pot with a lid perforated with small holes and placed it at the base of the tree. However it seems that our ants are very particular and they really are looking for tree sap because the only combination that has seemed to interest them is sugar syrup.

Trust us to be stuck with fussy ants!

  Borax has a really satisfying effect on ants. I use it in the house when there is an invasion.  They take it home to the nest.  I mix the borax into peanut butter and it takes about 3 or 4 days for the ants to disappear.   I have thought about using a partially opened tin can in the garden with the lid bent closed again to keep cats and dogs out of it.  If a mouse gets in.. oh well.

  Hello Clan;
   
  I wonder if molasses would work as well, if not better, than Tanglefoot, except for rainy weather. I bet it does, especially if it is spiked with malathion.
