No water mixture or anything else?

when I do it it does stick. it jsut coats the walls in a very thin layer of powder that is very difficult to cross. My ants are tetramorium and they used to cross the baby powder/rubbing alcohol barrier pretty easy, they just often would chose not to if they were well fed
So you just dip the cotton in the baby powder and apply it?
yup!
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

I really have to try this now. Don't know if it'll work here in Aus, considering how it's gotten hotter. Still a must try.
