Facebook Informative post of the day 5/14/14

The questions:

Got a real thinking question. Does anyone have a good working solution for controlling the little ants that love to invade the kitchen area and anywhere else that food is? I have tried all sorts of things that were supposed to work to no avail, must keep in mind that poisons are not an option because I have a toddler that will pick up and eat anything that he finds on the floor. Looking for a natural non poisonous solution, preferably one that I can make from plant resources available here.

The answers:

Jimmy Kirk The latest I tried was the baking soda and powder sugar in water, but the ants just avoid the area, seems they have a radar and know what to avoid. Back in the US I used the artificial sweeteners effectively, but they do now work here, maybe the stuff sold in the states is really poison?

Joshua Dean I promise you it works & it is cheap…. I use it as weed killer also & always wipe my counters down with it @ night. Keeps the flies down also.

PlayaZancudo BedandBreakfast First would be mixing this together powdered sugar and baking soda. Leave it in a small bowl or lid and they love it and die.
Secondly mixing in a spray bottle peppermint oil and water and we spray our counters with it and we don’t get ants.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
