This is an easy and safe way to kill ants. It will not hurt kids or pets.

How to:

  1. Take corn meal and place small piles of it in the location where you see ants
  2. Good locations - Corner of counters, area where you see the ants coming in
  3. Don't have cornmeal? Toss some popcorn kernels in the blender or food processor and process until a fine powder
  4. For clean-up ease, use a piece of wax paper, foil or paper towel to put the cornmeal on

Why it Works:

Ants can't digest the cornmeal. They take it back to the nest to feed the queen and others and die, as do the ones that eat it in the nest.

Linda Says:

It's a good idea to find the location that the ants are coming in. You can follow them from where you see them, back to the entry point if you watch carefully. Once you find that, seal the location with caulking or some other means, The goal is to kill the ones that are in the house and stop them from coming in.
