the inevitable failure of the chemical solution

arizona is home to a lot of ants. left to themselves, they can infest a house or destroy all the vegetation in a yard. since i moved in, i have been keeping tham in check with "many purpose dust" sprinkled around their holes. they "all" die within a day or so and don't re-emerge for weeks. evidently, i have hastened evolution and the survivors of my dustings have bred a resistant strain.
