    Dear Il~s,
    Past one month everyday evening there was a huge army of ants seen at the entrance of our house. Since then I and my hubby were fighting hard with red ants:bonk.They were seen in thousands in the evening after sunset. Everyday the population seems to be increased:rant. We used to spend atleast 40 mins to wash them all out. We surfed net and tried all methods but all in vain.:crazy We were much worried about our baby.
    Finally as one of the methods I took “Surgical Spirit” and without mixing anything in it I directly poured it on to the holes and at the entrance. Hurray!! Surprisingly we could not find a single ant!.:clap Due to strong pungent odor and bitter taste they did not find way to come out of holes!:hide:
    So finally we won the battle!.. :2thumbsup::wow

    Surgical spirit is a form of alcohol. You will find it in any pharmacy stores. Try it!
