About Those Ants

My last post At War with Ants has a new development, and thanks to YouTube, I’ve a new plan of attack. So far nothing has worked to get rid of them,  so before I reach for the gasoline, I’ve now something new to try.

Cornmeal

$1.79

Corn Meal! Really? They eat it, the corn meal expands, they can’t digest it… and the ant explodes. COOL! It doesn’t harm birds… I checked. Last night I put out the corn meal, this morning I see tons of ants all over it. I better see dead ones by tonight, or tomorrow morning I’m using gasoline and ending this saga once and for all.

Here’s the rather boring video showing a massive reduction of ants using corn meal.

  2. I used corm meal with great success! I poured a whole heap on our red ant hills in the yard, then when I saw them swarming all over the meal, I poured gasoline on them and lit it up! Whooosh, no more ants and you end up smelling like a taco! Ha ha ha!
