    Boric acid is sometimes used in a 24 hour urine collection bottle. The instructions given to men is to not stick the penis inside the bottle or a severe burn may occur. So the logical conclusion is that if a small amount of boric acid will burn your penis off then it should kill an ity-bity ant!

    Has a lot of uses. Fire retardant, antiseptic are others.
    We only recommend products used by professional PEST CONTROL OPERATORS to provide you with the best do it yourself home pest control products.

    However if your careful a little gasoline will work, just don't smoke wile using it and it will kill your grass also.
    When, I lived in FLA. the fire ants were bad so, I would doush good with gasoline and set ablaze, didn't have anymore problems.
    Boric acid alone will kill the ants. But I suggest diatomaceous earth . Buy food grade d e , put around ant hill , the take a tablespoon in juice for yourself. It is good for you. Food grade only though. Look it up.
    Also, don't let your pets near the boric acid it is poisonous.
