    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!!!

    I tried coffee grounds in my garden because the ants were everywhere. I sprinkled the grounds around all my veggies and down the rows. They still made their ant hills...IN THE COFFEE GROUNDS!!!!! I guess they didn't like Starbucks. LOL

    I use coffee grounds the my side walks as a snail deterrent. It's like one giant snail family reunion on the sidewalk leading up to my door every time it rains.
