Here is the deal. The KM Ant Pro Stations are not traps. They are liquid ant feeding stations. If you call a local pest control company, they will either apply Termidor, some liquid repellent spray, or use KM Ant Pro. A lot of pest control companies in SO Cal use KM Ant Pro Stations and Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait as a service. The average charge for this? Around $800 per year. Call around and check. You will see what I am telling you is true.
As far as an "expensive way to learn", believe me, these products work. I understand your frustration. You are dealing with an ant that obviously has a more interesting and palatable food source than a commercially available bait.
The boric acid you applied inside the walls will obviously keep them out of the walls. That may be why you are seeing trails outside of the walls.
I will talk to Ken at Ant Pro and have him contact you personally. Ken has spent a lot of time in California working on Argentine Ants and is probably the most knowledgeable person in the USA on Argentine Ant infestations.
We will help you get to the bottom of this. No worries.
