Natural Ants Control Tips

Here are some of the tips provided by our customers, as a cheap, easy and short-term temporary solution. We DO NOT guarantee the safety againsts those ideas. But, it would certainly be fun to give them a try.

  • Fire ants: non toxic way to kill them is plain old instant Grits. The ants eat them, then go for water the grits expand inside them & they die, they can't expel gas, & you don't worry about pets getting poisoned. Just sprinkle & go. (C.K.)
  • Be aware of the ants movements. They usually head for their holes before it is going to rain. (W. Cabot)

  • To keep ants from getting into your hummingbird feeders, take a sheet of Bounce (dryer sheet) and wrap around the hanger with a rubber band of tape on the ends. The ants won't come near it or get into the hummingbird's sugar solution. This works well especially if you have hummingbird feeders hanging from trees. (Jill Robertson)
  • To keep ants from entering the house (or anywhere else) sprinkle baby powder on entry points. The ants won't cross and it is safe around pets and children. Bonus, smells nice too! (Charlotte)
  • To keep the ants out of your sugar bowl put a piece of lemon peel in it. I can assure they won't show up! I used to keep my sugar bowl in the refrigerator in the summer because of the ants and now I'm free of them! (Mike)
  • Use a solution of water and bleach and spray entire path ants take, you have to lose the scent they follow. (Bell)
  • How to get rid of the stinging from a fire ant. Take 1 tsp. of Meat Tenderizer Seasoning put in a little bowl and add a drop of water. Mix until pasty like and add to spot where the fire ant bit... IT WORKS!!! (Deborah)
  • For ants put orange peels on sill, put peels in ant holes and add water. They will never return. (Sammy)
  • Ants dislike salt. Example: if they are coming through a doorway spread a good layer of salt in their path and they will no longer enter. (Naida)
  • To prevent wasps, ants, etc. from entering into the drain holes along the foundation in your brick home. Get some heavy (metal) black screen from your hardware store, cut it in strips approx. 1"x3". Flex it into a U shape and place in the the slots between the bricks. This lets air in and allows drainage, but keeps the bugs out. (Kenny D)
  • For sugar ants, (the little black ones) mix equal parts of sugar and borax, mix with water to a paste, dab in areas where ants like to visit. It dehydrates them. Outside, sprinkle the solution around known ant colonies. I was amazed at how they devour this! (Celine)
  • You can deter ants by putting Diatomaceous Earth down in the dirt. It supposedly dehydrates the ants and the die. Be careful though, read the caution for kids and animals. (Eric)
  • To keep ants away from your pets food outside or inside, put some vaseline (in a circle) around the pets bowl. The ants will not cross it! Ever! (Spyders)
  • Put cinnamon or baking soda in entry point cracks. Repeat occasionally. (Sanders)
  • Try using ground red pepper or curry to get rid of those little black ants that invade your house, put it at the source of their entrance.
  • I used to own a pet sitting service and a big ordeal was ants getting in the pet’s food. I started carrying around tin pie pans with me and all you have to do is put water in the pan, set the dog bowl inside of this, forming a “moat”. Ants can’t swim. So the food was always safe. Secondly, someone suggested grits….if you mix a bit of sugar in the grits the ants eat more of it and it speeds up the process. (Kathy Freeman)
