My Abyssinian cats, Julia and Gia, have absolutely no interest in my open borax baits but they both hate ants swarming their food bowls so I think they appreciate my efforts. Pantry moth eggs have even been found on the underside of peanut butter jar lids. Females can lay 400 eggs which are deposited in food sources. Warm temperatures draw bugs and rodents into food areas. Naphthalene balls works effectively in those areas only where there is less air exposure such as enclosed spaces like food storage container or grain storage container, wardrobe etc. All you need to do is take a small pouch made up of cloth. The previously smooth surfaces of the beds were now undulated, with curving piles of mulch surrounded by areas scraped down to the soil. Soaker hoses had been pulled up through the mulch and lay exposed every few feet. Mulch was flying everywhere, as well as fronds and branches and roots of plants, savagely torn up and scattered around.
A hot nail works well for making the holes or you might be able to use a hole punch or an ice pick. Their larvae crawl into cracks and holes. Like tiny Houdini’s they crawl into absolutely everything. Sirens and recordings of barking dogs and birds in distress seemed like something the birds would get used to and ignore. Dogs can taste sweet but usually stick to fruit. I called the Department of Wildlife and learned that wild turkeys are a protected species, so siccing the neighbor’s dogs on them was out. In addition, they’re not considered a threat, so the Department of Wildlife wouldn’t come and take them away. I’m ARMED and DANGEROUS when they come back! You have to make sure that absolutely everything that goes back in your kitchen cupboard has a container! If I had known what I know now, I probably wouldn’t have contracted them to begin with.
Now, place these pouches in your wardrobe corners and food storage containers. Now, place these small pouches in different locations such as in the storage container or in the grain storage places so that it is safe from moths. Some grain based items being sold in stores, primarily organic ones, can contain pantry moth eggs or even larvae. You can freeze opened dry goods to kill pantry moth larvae or eggs. After spreading in the kitchen, the boric acid will kill them instantly. You will still obtain the desired result. I flung a few rocks at them to make my point, made sure they were still going, and went back to look at my ruined flowerbeds. They ran off, and were joined by the ones in the other flowerbeds. My flowerbeds were full of fat, luscious bugs, and the turkeys weren’t leaving until they’d had their fill. The turkeys didn’t mind it a bit; it turns out they have a very poor sense of smell.
Nevertheless, it would be prudent to use the same containers described above in “Ants in the garden” in the house if you have inquisitive rug rats or pets around. Instead you can use the plastic margarine containers with holes as described above in “Ants in the garden”. All 13 of them were there, scattered among the trees, silently watching me from above. As I bent down to pick up a piece of wood, I heard an odd sound from above. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. Ingesting borax isn’t very dangerous to mammals especially in the tiny amounts you will be using. Put a couple of tablespoons of your borax mixture in the container and snap the lid down. Pouring boiling water alone on a small anthill might work to kill some workers and queens but the borax bait traps are much more effective and also work on large colonies.
