Thanks for the tips both of you. I have gotten rid of the tiny red ants by making the terra drops much smaller. 25% still managed to drown themselves, and after I observed-I noticed they just aren't the brightest of the ant species, and pile on top of each other pushing the others down to meet their last tasty gurgle of life [raft of life works best in water buddies]. However, it did seem to work and I haven't seen any for days.
As for the traps, they are still thick outside so I will look into that repellent. From what I observed [and was mentioned in video]...they do not seem lured to these traps and I wondered that myself when opening up package and looking at them. It's all solid in there, I'm just not sure it's appealing enough-so, we will try to put a little honey/water and mix it up a bit making it more ant tasty I think.
I have noticed some ant mounds in the yard as well, which I may go as far as just to jam one right on top of it. As of now, I am happy they are being kept bay out of the house and we will see about lessening their numbers in the yard.
Who said it before about not messing with a woman scorn...that's right, I am ready to lay that smack down.
