Baby Powder To Stop Ants

If you shake baby powder around where ants come into the house, they will stop coming. Their feet get stuck in the powder but you don't kill them. Never kill black ants as they keep the white ants at bay.

When at the beach, the lake or anywhere outdoors, and your child is playing in a small area, you can put a line of baby powder around the area. This will keep ants away. They will not cross over the line of baby powder. This will not kill them, just keep them out of the play area for a while.
