Thanks for the info.The ant is distorted and blurry. It looks like its under a water droplet or a layer of plastic or both... Is this the only photograph?
If it is found indoors in California, two likely possibilities are the Argentine Ant (Linepithema humile, formerly Iridomyrmex humilis) and the Odorous Ant (Tapinoma sessile).
I've heard the scent of the Odorous Ant described in various ways (rotten coconut, blue cheese, etc), but to me, the scent is like the sharp, pungent odor of nail polish.
The active ingredient is borax which you will find a lot cheaper at a grocery store. 20 Mule Team. Just mix with equal amounts of sugar.Thanks for the info.
I did some research. A lot of people recommend this. Looks like it's pretty safe and effective.
Thanks for the info. Seems Cornmeal Alone doesn't work.Have found corn meal also works. Ants can't digest it, take it back to the colony, and die.
