    Ants

    I have very small ants making their home underneath my liner and concrete decking. They're not carpenter ants and seem too small to do any real damage. They're just a few millimeters in length. That said, I'd rather them find a new home. Obviously, it's not a good idea to use pesticides anywhere near the pool. So, other solutions are sought. I used Borax a couple times. It works to clear them from the nest sight, but they later re-appeared on the other side of the pool. I'm going to try some food grade DE powder next. Any other ideas?

    Thanks.

    I've had good luck with Advion Ant Gel. It is a bait that kills the colony.
