  • I know this is going to sound crazy, but pour some instant grits on them.

  • well i know of a pesticide that you can get at home depot that works good and if you spray it around the perimeter of the house inside and out at nite when no one is up and about by morning its no longer harmful or what my relatives down south do is to find the mound they are comming from outside pour gas on them and light it on fire lol but im sure you looking for a more natural way which i dont know but if you want to know about the pedicide let me know.
