    Hi all

    Bit of a random question but noticed a couple of ants on my patio last night, and was wondering if anyone could recommend a kitty friendly ant killer? My two are outside cats and tend to lick things. I normally use Nipon gel inside the house and powder outside, but as this is my first year as a cat mummy I wanted to check if there was something special I could buy. The trouble is I've found a lot of ant killers aren't particularly effective so would be great to hear recommendations of safe yet effective things to try.

    Thanks

    Lou

    Depends if you can keep your cat(s) out of the area that is infested.

    We had a pretty bad ant problem over the weekend (hundreds in the kitchen - ewwww) and we just used shelf-bought ant killer.

    We kept Enzo out of the kitchen for the night and then cleaned the area thoroughly in the morning... problem gone :) Didn't really want Enzo in there with hundreds of ants anyways!! :scared:

    I am just getting prepared for them coming inside as last year they started outside and suddenly they were in the house. Don't mind them outside just inside. I'll have a look at the thread in a minute - thank for posting.
