    I am using the "Once for All powder", the powder will change from yellow to greyish colour, does that means it need to be wipe off and re-spread?

You have to find where they came from (source) and put large amount of this bait near their "home". They will lick and bring some "home". After some time, all ants will be killed.

    Where do you buy this? Giant or NTUC, Cold storage got sell this? TIA!

    Wood dust ants

    I moved into a new house barely few months. There are tiny 'ants' firstly in the built in cabinets in the kitchen where there are sawdust. After wiping the cabinets, the sawdust appear again and the ants will also be seen. My home designer claimed that new furniture will have such and he only tell us to use the ants posion. Wonder is it due to the poor quality of wood?! and Also my clothes in the built in wardobe also smell and been seem mouldy. (Now, I kiasu, put molt balls, "Hippo" and characoal to try get rid of the problem).

    I am using the "Once for All powder", I see lesser ants in the cabinets but they are still around the house like the less frequent used toliet's floor (at night especially), in the storage below the bed frame, kitchen table top, toliet's seat and table top, even saw 1 on my hanged clothes. (Nowadays fling my clothes harder before wearing). Now I am spreading the powder all around. (Lucliky no kid at the moment). However, the powder will change from yellow to greyish colour, does that means it need to be wipe off and re-spread? Does anybody have same experience or advise?thanks.

    Not sure if they bites. They are some so tiny like a speck of dust and they may pretend not to move till I blow at them, to confirm and kill them.

    i went to look for combat mini.. but it's the same plastic bait that i used before and didn't work. saw this chinese cheap brand in pellet form. used it and it's very effective! no more ants in my room, my living room, near my dining table and much lesser in the porch!

    hope the ants don't get "immuned" to this bait cos i still have 3 more packs. :X

    i don't know if ants nowadays are stronger too cos i suspect they bit their way through into my cereal packet.. full of ants inside now. like a brand new cereal packet with box unopened. really don't know what to do with them. in my room somemore! away from all sources of food.

    my table is also full of ants. and i don't know why! i have no food, i'm very particular when i eat at my table and i just cleaned it and found no nest! i can't figure out their trail cos they just seem to be wandering around on their own. but they still keep coming. ugh!

    i've tried many of those plastic baits but never worked. they just avoid it. i had to resort to putting my mentos on top of the bait so they might happen to wander into the plastic bait. sigh.

    and yes, they are also disturbing my hamster. they are always around the cage.. they steal my hamster's food and water. but i'm not sure if hamster is affected by their presence.


    will definitely keep a look out for combat mini.
    swerves018: that sounds serious. lol. did you try to use any ant killer stuff or leave any sweet stuff around?

    I have been free from ants for a few months now, but have seen some these few days. There is no line of anything, just one here and another there. It's hard to trace them like this. Wondering where is the nest!!!
