ASPARTAME = Best ANT POISON!!!!!
From the June 2006 Idaho Observer:

Aspartame - The World's Best Ant Poison
... contributed by Jan Jensen of WELLthy Choices

We live in the woods and carpenter ants are a huge problem. We
have spent thousands of dollars with Orkin and on ant poisons
trying to keep them under control but nothing has helped.

So when I read somewhere that Aspartame (Nutrasweet) was
actually developed as an ant poison and only changed to being
considered non-poisonous after it was realized that

a lot more money could be made on it as a sweetener than as an
ant poison, I decided to give it a try. I opened two packets of
aspartame sweetener, and dumped one in a corner of each of our
bathrooms. That was about 2 years ago and I have not seen any
carpenter ants for about 9 to
12 months. It works better than the most deadly poisons I have
tried. Any time they show up again, I simply dump another
package of Nutrasweet in a corner, and they will be gone for a
year or so again. Since posting this information I have had many
people tell me of their success solving ant problems with this
substance, when nothing else worked.

We found later that small black ants would not eat the
aspartame. It was determined that if you mixed it with apple
juice, they would quickly take it back to the nest, and all
would be dead within 24 hours, usually. I have found that
sometimes it will kill them, and sometimes it does not. Not sure
why, may be slightly different species of ants or something.

Fire Ants: We got our first fire ant hill about 2 weeks ago.
Poison did not work. We tried aspartame and the ants ignored it
until we got a light rain. It was just a sprinkle, enough to
moisten the Nutrasweet and ground, but not enough to wash it
away. They went crazy, hundreds of them grabbing it and taking
it back into the mound.
When I checked the mound 2 days later, there was no sign of the
fire ants. I even dug the mound up some, and still saw none of
them.

How it works:
Aspartame is a neuropoison. It most likely kills the ants by
interfering with their nervous system. It could be direct, like
stopping their heart, or something more subtle, like killing
their sense of taste so they can't figure out what is edible, or
smell, so they can't follow their trails, or mis-identify their
colonies members, so they start fighting each other.

Not sure what causes them to end up dying; just know that for
many species of ants, it will kill them quickly and effectively.
As with any poison I recommend wearing gloves and washing any
skin areas that come in contact with this poison, and avoid
getting it in your mouth, despite anything the labeling may
indicate. I suspect it will work for other insects such as
yellow jackets as well, but have not tested that yet.

Re: ASPARTAME = Best ANT POISON!!!!!
I haven't tried aspartame, but small ants won't take cane sugar (which comes in small crystals) either, they need a little moisture before they can notice it (taste or smell it). I've seen them examine sugar crystals and ignore them, until I wet them, then they get excited.

Soapy water kills little ants, like argentine ants. I get some concentrated biodegradable detergent and mix a bit into a fertilizer dispenser and spray around the house. If I find a nest I soak that area with it. It kills the ants on contact (within a minute or two), and smells good too. I spray it around on the plants to to get the aphids and scale that the ants like to farm. Also, if I find a nest I can set my sprayer on "stream" and blast a hole down into the dirt to try to zap out the nest faster. This is a contact killer, doesn't have any residual kill power. As soon as it drys the ants can walk over the area with no problems. Also, if I don't spray too heavily it may not kill the bigger insects which I Ok with me, and it doesn't kill off lizards and other small creatures, but it gets Argentive ants pretty good.

Can I use a liter bottle of Diet 7-up .. and just pour it down the ant hole?
I don't care if they drown or drink it - I just want them to die.

Its a well known fact you use any kind of powder to get rid of ants, even baby powder, because they dont like crossing powders, its like razors to them.

Almost every gum and hard candy contains aspartame - - buyer beware.

MD's have written about it's toxicity.

It also causes diabetes, weight gain, and seizures according to what I have read.

Re: ASPARTAME = Best ANT POISON!!!!!
Found this in the above link to snopes.com

When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol ASPARTAME coverts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. (Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants). The methanol toxicity mimics multiple sclerosis; thus people are being diagnosed with having multiple sclerosis in error. The multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, where methanol toxicity is.

(Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants)

Killed by their own poison?

I can believe it. Let an aspartame soda sit in a hot car for a few days. Put in the fridge later and drink it as your normally would. They taste significantly nastier than before!
