    I got a big ants problem. Unfortunately the available products from SuperLee and Hypermarket are helping only for a short time or not at all. How can I get rid of these little monsters?

    Welcome in the Philippines haha. I had the same annoying problem as you. There’s a German fellow, I met him in Bogarts Resto Bar 3 months ago. He gave me a powder from Thailand. Very effective. It helped immediately - until now. Just ask in Bogarts for Hans Peter or pm me.

    Orange Oil is your friend here

    mix it with a little molasses and water

    plenty of videos on youtube

    Orange Oil sticks to their bodies and burn the layer of fat they have on they outside of their body and kills them

    they are beyond a nuisance for sure

    I have the same serious problem. Was about to ask for advice here as well. The orange oil available @Lazada, is the one that can be used or on stock in any kind of shop in Dumaguete. Happy to hear.

    ITS JUST NORMAL ORANGE OIL............ITS USED BY MOST CLEANERS NOW , INDUSTRIAL OR COMMERCIAL AS ITS THE BEST AT BREAKING DOWN GREASE/FAT/GUNGE
    PERFECT FOR ANTS, ITS STICKS TO THEIR BODY AND THE ORANGE OIL MELTS THE FAT
    any one in dgte............be sure now its orange oil.........not orange soap/laundry detergent/dishwasher stuff

    I don't know.
    Use an ant bait that the worker ants take back to the nest and kill the queen.

    Here is a commercial product
    http://www.terro.com/indoor-baiting

    You can make your own.

    Lee Plaza sells borax. I do not know where you can buy commercial ant bait.

    These are sugar type ant baits. Some rare ants eat protein/fat. These can be baited by making a bait with peanut butter and borax. Protein ants are rare. Use sugar first.

    You will have to do this yearly as that is about how long it takes the ants to establish a new nest.

    I went into Lee Plaza for Borax and ask an assistant where is it, she said they don't sell it with a blank stare.
