Ant !!!!

We have ants in the van for the first time ever. I could understand if we were in France , Spain or Portugal but not Lincoln.

I have emptied all the lockers etc but still only find odd ones rushing about.

I am thinking of getting one of the bait traps from B & Queue where the ants go in take the bait and then they are history.

Anyone have any tips for me please.

Cheers

DJM

Bait works. We have little tins we bought in Germany. Just leave it in place anywhere out of sight, below drawers etc. it'll keep you ant free.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

Our garden is FULL of ants this year, the starling are here from dawn till dusk, I imagine the ants are top of the menue.
In the house we have NONE because, as I have said many times before, on every windowsill I have dried lemons, some are 30 years old, but each year I dry more, also have a few of them (dried lemons) in the Navajo, no ants there either.

When you say dried lemons do you mean whole ones or slices laid out along the window sill.Also how do you keep the lemons on the sill from falling off. they will keep my conkers company.silly question, is that inside or outside window sill.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

Iīve bin waiting for you.
Whole lemons, in little baskets, inside (they have to be kept dry dope)
As they are not round you donīt even need the basket unless you have a cat who likes playing rugby

When we had loads of ants in the van I eventually found the bait stations.

Lay it down in one of their 'trails' and they'll eventually disappear. Don't think it took too long.

Must get some lemons for the house - to go alongside my conkers too!
