Green Zone: Ants be Gone!

With spring here, and the warmer weather coming, we all know what we can expect (other than mosquito's): ants!  Luckily, we don’t generally have a problem with ants at the house except for by the dog’s food dish, but a friend of mine has given me a great way to kill ants without chemicals.  The way to get rid of ants is to sprinkle the area with (raw) grits!  The ants will eat the grits and it will swell in their belly and kill them.


  1. Have you tried this? I have heard of it, but never tried it. We have a few fire ant mounds in our yard this year and I am going to have to try this.

    1. Not yet, but I am going to this weekend. I found some ants around the dog's food dish again! Ugh. :-) I'll let you know how it goes!!
