Two summers ago during a heat wave of ninety days with temperatures over 100( each day, our grass scorched and we lost large patches of it. Now it is spring and I've noticed that in those bald patches of yard, ants have merrily taken up residence. A quick and hefty sprinkling of cayenne pepper to their anthills soon had them leaving for greener pastures, however. There are other ways to repel ants, and most don't include using pesticides.
Whether you've got an ant problem in your house, or in your yard or garden, here's a list of products that will fend off and repel ants:
Another good poison to use to kill ants is diatomaceous earth. Sprinkle it anywhere you see ants. When they traipse through it, the dust will infiltrate and expose their exoskeleton, and then they will die after dehydrating. Take care not to use poisons or insecticides in eating or cooking areas, and certainly never around children or pets!
