Any chemical free ways of getting rid of ants? No matter how much I clean, I can't seem to get rid of them!! They're getting BAD too...I just had to throw away two boxes of cereal because they were in the boxes. I tried covering their little hole a few times with different things but they always seem to chew their way thru! They're taking over my damn house!! Help me PLEASE!! :0)


That's their hole...I was desperate and even tried covering it with packaging tape- didn't work :0(

Try valsoline. You fill the whole where they are coming from. It does work. I have had to do this in the past.

I would try the A&D. It can't hurt for you to try. Let me know if it works.

I've heard of sprinkling cinnamon or borax around the perimeter of wherever they are a problem....they don't like to cross the line or something. Don't use borax if you have lil kids or pets, though. Good luck.
