Do you have a problem with ants? With kids, pets, and environmental concerns you may not want to use harsh chemicals to get rid of them and you don’t have to. There are several natural remedies for ants but this is my favorite because it’s cheap, easy, and safe.
Cornmeal. That’s it. Pour out a pile of cornmeal where you see ants coming in or near where you see them congregating outside, give it a few days to a week and your ant problem is history.
How does this work? The ants will bring the cornmeal back to their colony like any other food item but eating it will kill them because they can’t digest it. This isn’t an instantaneous method, but it’s an effective one.
