    Baby powder. Shake a slim line wherever you see them. After 2-3 days all will be gone and you don't have to use bad chemicals.

      MYTH: Ants won’t cross a chalk/powder line.

      TRUTH: A chalk/powder line may temporarily stop the ants (it’s the smell that “ disrupts the scent trail”) but it won’t be long before they figure out a way around the chalk/powder. We probably don’t have to tell you, but ants are very persistent creatures!

    Fastest method...Amdro Ant bait put little bit by ant trail taken back to colony kills everything.Boric acid or Borax mixed with powdered sugar works same way.Borax takes a little longer because it is not as strong as Boric acid(they are the same) Borax is the least toxic. just keep kids pets out of it all and clean up what is not taken to colony.

      If it has Talc in it then it will work....This home remedy for ants has been around since the days of yore – except back then, it probably did work. You see, back in the day, baby powder was made with talc (before it was discovered that inhaling talc could be dangerous) and talcum powder is pretty effective for dealing with ants.

  • Hi Kathie - 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
