Do you have a problem with ants? With kids, pets, and environmental concerns, you may not want to use harsh sprays and poisons to get rid of ants. Now you don’t have to. There are several natural remedies for ants but this is my favorite because it’s cheap, easy, and safe.
Are you ready for this ancient secret? Okay, maybe it’s not ancient and maybe not even much of a secret, but it does work quite well and is safe around your kid and pets.
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?
Rumor has it that 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 and may take a few days before you start seeing results, but it’s an effective method. I have used cornmeal for years to get rid of ants and I will never go back to sprays that are potentially harmful to kids, pets, and wildlife ever again.
