We are in a drought here in MA (or so they say). I just bought this house in January and my neighbors on both sides have these really great lawns and mine seems to be the one infested with the ants. I really have to put the stuff into each ant hill? I think it will take me all summer before every hill is covered. I have a 1/2 acre of land and there really isn't one spot that does not have a hill. These ants have certainly been working hard. But if i have to do it hill by hill then I WILL! Thanks for the information. I really appreciate it!
