i will tell you wat i used to for the ants, if you have any dogs, you might be using a powder called Notex (that comes in yellow can) for the ticks, just use that sprinkel around and see the magic. it really works take my word.

please be careful, when there are ants, there are termites. If You block the visible path, they will take a hidden path through walls, You do not want that. Learnt it the hard way in our house in Chennai.
Please call experts, Godrej pest care seem to do good work but are darn expensive.

I know that guys but this was a couple of years back. Anyways you can still go to a store that sells pesticide and they have another product(powder non smelling) which is for ants, termites etc. This is also very effective and poisonous as well.
Inquire with the local store that sells fertilisers or pesticides else contact any nursery for help. Pest Control is messy smelly and can make you sick if you are allergic to it.

lakshmana rekha is very effective. but many fakes are there in market. even HIT is available as chalk. this is the best, least damaging solution. don't use DDT, gammaxene. nit good. both are powders and hence gets mixed up with air.
among pest constrol guys PCI is better than godrej and if u calling them ask for gel treatment only . otherwise the spray the poisonous pesticides in oyur house mixed with kerosene. As of now gel treatment is the best. bayer agroscience produces them ( maxforce IC gel)

Try calling Jagadish (9845597559). He is from Biligiri Pest Control. Have
used them effectively to control cockroaches. They use some herbal stuff so no side effects. Not sure whether they have any solution for ants but no harm in checking with them. They take it as annual charge. I paid around 2400 for one year.

If you don't want to get your hands dirty, then try Godrej Hicare.

I once saw a mass movement of black ants on my room's door frame, as if they were preparing for some assault on their enemies. I thwarted their attempt by using Mortein.

Thanks for all the replies guys.
Launched mission 'TerminaAntz' this morning pouring boiling hot water into their refuges/homes. Wasnt able to source any of the weapons mentioned on this thread and so this was how we decided to start. Floating bodies of the ant populace were seen, so worth a start. Now, we need to control their movement, and thats where LR and HIT will come into action.
Will get these in the evening, and we have a packed weekend schedule ahead of us.
