HI its only available from Amazon as an add item via your highlighted listing number [B000TAW39M] unfortunately - the other two purchase options are for marketplace place sellers with low feedback ratings who don't meet current HUKD listing criteria.

During my childhood, once me and my sister threw some chilli powder on ants to make them go away. After half an hour they all disappeared taking chilli powder with them.

Ants will not harm you. Leave them alone they are part of a food chain for our wildlife. I have an invasion every summer; they march through the backdoor into my kitchen, nick some sugar (I leave a few little piles for them) and continue on their way out of my window... Outside, they marshall and nurse aphids up one of our birch trees which masses of ladybird larvae feed on. Blue tits, finches and other birds join in on the feasting. Come evening they march back to the nest (snacking on sugar, again) and are gone by bedtime. Ants fed, aphids tended to, ladybird larvae and numerous birds fed. No harm done.

boiling water to the nest.



Yes, because ants traditionally build their nests in an easily accessible place, usually somewhere that would be very easy to pour water on them as they like being wet.

No harm done.

And the harm done is what precisely?

I could leave a huge turd on my coffee table if I wanted to. There's no harm done, but it's not very pleasant.

Ants = Turds... How did you manage that leap of imagination?

1) Ants groom themselves more than almost any other type of animal known. In this respect their feet are second in importance only to their antennae, which are immaculate.

2) The physical structure of ants' feet, and the nature of the lipid layer covering their exoskeleton, makes them a poor site for bacterial retention even if they didn't groom themselves so well.

3) The chemical secretions in ants' saliva and external glands are loaded with some remarkable antimicrobial agents--ants, after all, are assaulted by infectious agents in the environment just as we are (possibly more so when they live underground). They've had millions more years than primates to develop the body chemistry to make their bodies and nests as close to sterile as can be conceived--imagine if human sweat were composed of Lysol and penicillin.

4) They effectively disinfect where they walk!

Oooh. That seems to have quietened you, Roger_Irrelevant. See what a little education can do?
