Try the grape jelly with borax directly on the nest.

rdy-b, please do not spray diesel on the ground...the only place for diesel is in machinery.  You'll be harming more than the ants if you do that.

Google "andro" brand any killers...I think they have a granular...also I think you can sprinkle sulfur granules as well as a deterrent. 

Hope you can find a safe control...

I talked to my comercial friends and they said spray the ground with diesel fuel.

If this practice is widespread among commercial beekeepers, CCD may not really be much of a mystery...I can easily imagine diesel fumes masking pheremones, since our smokers are able to do that. That stink would probably fill the hive constantly, not to mention the toxicity factor.

rdy-b

    Sorry I took so long, trouble with internet access.  Seems MP3 Rocket bans us from the internet.  Anyway, all I do is use my finger to smear a film around the base outside and inside.  Doesn't take much and lasts real well.  Bees ignore it since it's out of their normal traffic.  I have SBB so thats why I smear the inside if the base.  The film is only as wide as my finger and the ants refuse to pass it.

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)
