Now that the warmer weather is upon us,

what is your remedy for ANTS? I know they are going to be coming in the house soon no matter how clean I keep it.

I want something safe for my 2 year old.

  • I used to put a line of cinnamon like a barrier in front of the door and it worked pretty good for us

  • Cinnamon? Never heard of that. I'll have to forward that to my mom- who, incidentally has this issue right now.

  • Instant grits. They eat them and then when the grits get wet they swell, and it's not a pretty picture, but it works.
