    The coffee grounds don't work. I tried it for 2 weeks. The little monsters built their hills in the coffee grounds. Either that or they like Starbucks hazelnut espresso so much that they want to live in it. Next thing to try is cornmeal and then baby

    Hi, I may be too late for this, but years ago I saw an ant line coming on my kitchen counter next to the outside door. I put a teaspoon of sugar next to their line outside and they stopped for that sugar instead of coming in my kitchen.

    We use grits. Just pour around problem areas and they take the grits back to the hill and eat them. Once they ingest any liquid, the grits swell and they die. Instant grits are fine.

    I haven't tried this yet... But my dad and his brother say to create a small sugar line from one ant hill to another. The neighboring ants destroy each other!!!
