Take piece of foil and put a mixture of baking soda and powder sugar (about half and half). Ants intestinal tracts are highly acidic and baking soda is a base or basic. So, as we might recall from high school chemistry, a base will neutralize an acid or vice versa. This chemical reaction, among other things, will produce a lot of gas. So the ants are attracted by the powered sugar and in the process of eating the powered sugar also eat
the baking soda, this reacts with their highly acidic intestinal tract, produces lots gas and bursts their intestines.
