Leafcutter Ants
2024-01-26 11:46:02 | read: 2196
We have several kinds of ants, and I did not find the homemade ant spray to be effective on any but the smallest.  The worst we have are "leafcutter ants."
They build a network of underground homes, spreading out far and wide.  A commercial product called AMDRO does work on them, but completely inappropriate for using in food growing areas. 
Bifen is also said to work.  Since it is a product made from the chrysanthemum plant, and so is a less expensive product I use called PyGanic, i use the latter, but seem to keep finding new hills all the time to treat.  PyGanic used to be considered an organic compound, but I am not sure it still qualifies as organic.
By the way, you should know that JWA does help a little bit in deterring the ants if applied often.  They don't seem to like the taste.
So, I read on the internet that SUGAR could be used and that it would be taken to the nest and dry out the exoskeleton of the queen.  Finally, to my question: does this make sense to you in your knowledge of insects and chemistry?
(I haven't found diatomaceous earth to be very effective.)  Since sugar is organic, it would be a cheap and easy fix, if it is feasible that it might work.
Please give your opinion.

    Increasing the concentration of JWA is effective against ants, but I think mixing it with sugar could increase the viscosity and make it more effective. However, the leaves on your crops may become messy. There are other substances allowed for organic cultivation to increase viscosity. Glycerin and paraffin oil.
