  • Why would you want to kill ants in their natural environment? I can see if they're in your home, but outside?!

  • This website has some ideas: http://www.thefrugallife.com/ants.html  I like to get rid of the ants in my yard because they eat my plants and berries in my garden and come into my house.

  • My mom used something.... I can't remember what it was called, but it was ground up coral. It's supposed to be so sharp to them.

  • I have used vinegar, my Grandma told me about it. But when I used it it did kill the ants, but when the vinegar dried out, more ants came and ate the dead ones, so I don't think it worked too well.

  • Corn meal. But why would you kill the ones in your yard? I can see if they're coming in the house, then sprinkle a strong line of it around your foundation, but not your whole yard - nothing will keep them out of the whole yard.
