Use Sweet N' Low for Ants

This isn't a tip, it's a thank you for a contributor to Thriftyfun.com who suggested putting down Sweet n Low to get rid of ants.

Works like a charm! Better than ant traps. If it rains though, of course you have to put down more.

When I see ants, I open several packets (one would probably be fine, but I tend to be a little gung ho on things) and spread them out in the path they're making.

It's amazing to watch how they stop and start carrying some of it back to their nest. I've actually seen them carve a path in the white Sweet N Low. I see less of them the next day and by the second day the ants are gone.

Naturally, I use the cheapest version of Sweet N Low that I can find! Not the actual brand name! Too expensive!

Thank you for the tip. It worked and was cheap and simple. We love that!

Does it have to be "Sweet N Low " can it be Equal or any other "Sweetener? Does it work on ALL ANTS? I sure hope so.
