Feeding behavior of triatomines from the southwestern United States: an update on potential risk for transmission of Chagas disease.
Toxicity of a Boric Acid-Sucrose Water Bait to Solenopsis invicta (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
Low concentrations of boric acid are necessary for delayed toxicity and reduced repellency against the red imported fire ant in large fire ant colonies exposed continuously to 4 concentrations.
Laboratory evaluation of a boric acid liquid bait on colonies of Tapinoma melanocephalum Argentine ants and Pharaoh ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
A 1% boric acid-sucrose water bait and 0.9% hydramethylnon granular bait were evaluated for efficacy against small laboratory colonies of Tapinoma melanocephalum (F.); Argentine ants, Linepithema…
Delayed Toxicity as a Critical Factor in the Efficacy of Aqueous Baits for Controlling Argentine Ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
Boric acid, imidacloprid, and thiamethoxam in sucrose aqueous baits had different delayed toxicities to worker Argentine ants, Linepithema humile (Mayr), and the negative impact of fast-acting toxicants on trail following, recruitment, trophallaxis, and control of Argentine ants is discussed.
Pest Management of Argentine Ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
Control of Argentine ants, Linepithema humile (Mayr), around structures in urban settings requires an extensive and thorough use of existing registered sprays and baits. Barrier sprays must be thor...

This book consolidates much of the literature on the important pest and other species in the genus Camponotus and is recommended for those looking for a basic overview of carpenter ant biology and management as well as for researchers wanting access to a fairly good review ofCarpenter ant primary literature.
Liquid boric acid bait for control of the Argentine ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
Over the 10-wk duration of the bait study, structures where control baits were applied did not show a significant change in ant population numbers, whereas those receiving the boric acid bait showed a significant and continuous reduction of ants.
