I have little biting ants in my front yard. I DON'T want to use any kind of nasty chemicals that kill everything or that have negative effects on the environment. I also don't want to get bitten by ants anymore!
Any ideas? Thanks!!

I've been making my own cleaners lately. After finding out I'm allergic to so much, it has really helped. The following recipe is in the book The Naturally Clean Home and says that it works on ants. I have not tried this out. It says you should spray them on their travel routes. Hope this helps!
1/2 c flaxseed oil
5-6 garlic cloves, smashed with skins on
2 c water
1 tsp liquid castile soap
Combine flaxseed oil with garlic. Cover and let sit overnight. Add the remaining ingredients to a spray bottle. Strain the garlic from teh oil and add oil to the spray bottle. Shake well before using.
