diatomaceous earth and boric acid

Welcome back Adam Ant, been a while!

I totally forgot about diatomaceous earth. I have a
box of that and I use it together with boric acid powder
that has cockroach pheremones, etc... in it for ants.
Don't need it for my garden but in some places by my sidewalk
and driveway, there are some serious ant problems and
I sprinkle both of them along their trail and all over the holes.

The dirt here is really sand land with lots of termites and ants,
but the diatom earth and boric acid works well for a little while
then they're back. But I prefer having to use that stuff
occasionally instead of spraying chemicals on my property.
