thank you very much, Helwa. I will follow your advice. I just went onto the terro website and found their stuff is boric acid and honey. And they suggest the same process: Follow the ants to their entrance point and place some of the stuff there as well.

Arghhh. I'm going on vacation next week and my brother in law is coming twice a day to take care of the keets and I'm not sure how to handle all this now. But alas, I'm sure we'll figure it out.
