So last year i had just regular tiny ants and i was able to get a handle on them with borax and honey paste,,,now this year we're getting what looks like the same little ants but with wings!! What do i do? The borax and honey paste isn't doing anything<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hopmad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hopping mad">

I don't have a solution for you, but wanted to share that "flying ants" could be one of two things:<br><br>
1.) termites<br>
2.) breeding ants; after the ants breed they fly away, rip off their wings and start a new colony.<br><br>
Capture one and make sure it's not a termite. If it is, you do not want those little buggers close enough to your house to be a nuisance.
