They bloody get everywhere! Regular ants I can deal with but the bloody little things had to evolve and sprout wings to annoy us even more! What's the best way to kill them...every single one of them!? Preferably a horrible painful death. Oh, and how to keep them away. Thanks.

Nippon gel is great, they take it down to the nests and it kills them off... Ive also used toilet duck and hot water lol

It's like something out of a Hitchcock movie! How do you go about finding where the nest is? Ant powder doesn't seem to work either cause the fly in!

I always use Nippon for regular Ants, but it has no effect on these flying Ants. We get them every year and just use fly/Ant killer spray (has to be the right one, some don't work on them!). They normally come through some small whole in a window frame or brick work so block up the whole after killing them.

They are a right pain though.

Any better ideas welcome

I dunno, ants get a chance of sex once in their lifetime and all you can think of is yourself. Where would we be if ants weren't around to clean up the place?

Suddenly been reminded of.. it came from the desert, used to freak me out that game oO
