Experiments in Simplified Control of Mound-Building Ants in the Forest
Abstract:The financial factor is of great importance to the private owner in the consideration of forest insect control. The authors demonstrate simple and inexpensive methods for controlling the mound-building ant. Mounds should be treated when they are small. Treatment, with commercial carbon disulphide or ethylene dichloride, should be carried out in the late fall when seasonal activity has ceased or in the summer during periods of high humidity and low atmospheric pressure when most of the ants will be in the mound.
