Ants: Safe and Effective Cure
I use a non-toxic ant spray that is primarily either mint, Victor's, or lemongrass oil, EcoLogic or EcoSmart in the house. It kills them on contact, and you can rub the residue on areas like doorways and cupboard edges.
I have also used the little hockey puck type ant traps that are toxic, but my cats don't bother them. I put them under furniture that is out of the way.
Caulk the area where they are getting in. And once or twice a year I spray the outside foundation with a Carpenter Ant & Termite spray thats toxic, so I wear a mask and gloves to do the job, I also wear safety googles.
Perfect from DesertRose. Sprinkle Jiffy muffin mix where you see the ants and bey baseboards. They take it back to the nest. Ants can't digest it and die.
I use packaged cornbread mix that says it is sweetened and put it where they are. They will take it to the mound, everyone will eat it and die, they can't digest the cornmeal, but will take it because it is sweetened. Little goes a long way.
I read this from : Itsmemic
Medicated powder from the Dollar Tree. It has eucalyptus in it...menthol...I puff it around my homes foundation..and inside under my birdcages in the cracks under moldings. Work immediately and they never come back. I do this at the first sign of ants..in one day..GONE. The powder is in a very large container and lasts quite awhile too !! And smells great !
Not toxic to my birds OR dog
What if you make a barrier around the house.
I did some research, since we know what works for one person doesn't always work for another. I found this site and it's pretty informative. I know some tips you may not be able to use but there are some good ones also that will hopefully help.
Hi Stormy - Those little buggers are relentless, aren't they?!? This is the most effective method and all-natural spray DIY that we use with ants. It's best indoors, but will also work outside with more frequent applications. Hope this helps! Hugs, Holly
If you use any of the above ways you need to add Boric acid or Borax. Fastest way to be rid of them Amdro ant bait just put a little on trail and they carry back to colony it kills everything it only takes 2-12 hrs tops. Just put a little next to/beside the ant trails and put something over it then shut the door for a hour so the ants can get it to colony,then you can clean up what is left after trail is gone.just try not to actually disrupt the trail.If you disrupt trail they'll stop working or move trail somewhere else.Yes I know you said you prefer non toxic. so use the Borax--Borax has a low toxicity for people and animals, but ants are another story. When ants consume the boraxbait, it interferes with their digestive system and gradually kills them. This slow kill allows time for the worker ants to carry the bait back to the nest to share with the rest of the colony and queen.just keep everything away from area for a little while and get rid of ants put it down when everyone goes to bed put a board or something over it keep bathroom door shut. I use the Amdro ant bait and have 9 animals, kid in house never had a problem.
