Anthill dirt

Found a few large anthills and was wondering for those of you that use this dirt, how do you get the ants outs? Never used anthill dirt before just saved up dry dirt from the summer but I figured I would give it a try since it is supposed to be like waxed dirt correct? Also if someone could just verify all your trap tag needs is name and address OR trapper id# Correct? I read somewhere or talked to someone that said that you also need your phone number if going the name and address route...didn't think this was the case. So if anyone could help me out with these two questions it would be appreciated! Thanks!

Re: Anthill dirt

I myself just got 2 5 gal pails of dry ant hill dirt. I plan on sifting that on my traps along with Glycol. I noticed the glycol was thick in the bottle, What do you guys do to thin it so it can spray? Water?

Re: Anthill dirt

Ant hill dirt is ok after you sift it.Don't think it is a substitute for waxed dirt cause it isn't.It will not repel moisture like waxed dirt .It is only a little better than plain dry dirt( been there done that,that's how come I know it will freeze).You won't have to worry about ants this time of year,they are all underground.
Your phone number isn't required on your trap tag just your complete mailing address and your name.

Re: Anthill dirt

I get my anthill dirt in September with a Kubota and a loader bucket. Bring it back to the house and dump & spread on a tarp to dry. The ants will have long vacated by November.
