Those are Sow bugs. They live in moist environments. About the only thing
you can do to get rid of them is to make the area dry.

Hey :) We also had an ant problem. The little circle ant baits work like a
charm! Made all of the ants die really quick! Raid didn't work for us
either.

The best thing I've found to work for ant hills is borax and icing sugar...
Just make a small mixture of it - depending on the size of the ant hill, no
more than about 1/4 cup of borax and 1/4 cup of regular icing sugar... mix
it together then put it on the ant hill. Those pesky worker ants will bring
the icing sugar to the queen ant and along with it, they'll bring her borax,
which will kill her.

so I heard,
where do you get the borax and how does it look like.?


the one from borateem does not work.
but that never seem to work for me. may be I got the wrong mix or wrong
borax? the ants just not interested. I am dealing with possible carpenter
ants. in the yard. last year
I sprayed the anthills near part of the front sidewalk earlier in the dark
morning . they seem to disappeared thru the rest of the summer. However now
I got anthills and trails all over along the sidewalk


I am waiting for dry weather to spray them again and then spread a thin
layer of Wilson's ant powder.

Go buy a product called "Seven" (spelled differently than that).

It works great. I buy 2 cans a year (it's a powder) and cover my
entire yard with it. If you have large ant mounds, put extra on them.

From my experience, it kills ALL bugs, including ants.
Immediate results.

It also got rid of my slugs.

I bought it at Rona for around $12

Check the laundry aisle at Walmart. It's in a box, and it's about the size
of a medium box of Minute Rice. I believe the box has a fair bit of green
on it, and it has some kind of a person (maybe a kid, man, whatever) on it.
It says Borax right on the box. It's right in the same area as the laundry
stuff and usually right next to the stuff that is for treating/softening
water for laundry. Look up high on the top shelf - that's where it usually
seems to be. It looks just like grainy, white laundry soap, but it is in a
box.
"So Clean" is similar, and cheaper (same price, but you get more in the "So
Clean" box, but I've never tried that brand, I've always used Borax for ant
issues.)
And your regular, run of the mill Roger's icing sugar you can find at the
store in the bags.
