Cooking Oil Spray Kills Kitchen Ants

I learned today that the cheap nonstick cooking oil spray kills black kitchen ants on contact, even if it lacks the ability to keep them from coming back.

Has anyone tried pouring vinager on them. It would be cheaper but smell worst.

Pam kills ants on dog and cat food. I spray the food and bowl, and it kills the ants immediately. They are usually black kitchen ants. It will not kill other ants. It won't poison the dog or cat if they eat the Pam on their food.

I also use Pam in the kitchen to kill ants.

I make sure I wipe up the oil around the sink once they are dead, and that is about 5 seconds. I don't like seeing t he dead ants all around. It has no residual action, but I don't see them as much the more I spray and I usually use it on the sink area. I did spray the food, and they didn't return. I use orange furniture polish to kill roaches on contact, around food preparation areas, and then I wash the area. I like using these non toxic methods, and they are home tested before I put them on here.... it really works if your aim is good and mine is great. LOL :)

If it kills aunts that quickly I'd think twice about using it on my food constantly. It might not kill us instantly but used for a long period of time who knows. It might cause cancer. Same thing with coffeemate. Ever notice how the bugs avoid it? Not good.
