Dealing With Ants Without Poison

Bronze Tip Medal for All Time! 64 Tips

Unusally hot weather has led to ants seeking relief in my house. With dogs I do not want to use poisons. Dollar store baby powder sprinkled on window and doorsills and directly on any ant trails kills them and is non-toxic, doesn't reek, or cause risks of toxic pesticides. Baby powder dries out their nasty little bodies and is easy to wipe or vacuum up the next morning. (I leave it on the windowsills for a while unless there are lots of dead ants there.) I have been doing this forever.

I will try this today. I am so tired of little bitty ants all over my kitchen sink and draining board.every spring now they started a week ago again.There is nothing there for them But every morning my sink is full of them I turn on the hot water and wash them down the sink. But their relatives keep on coming.

I use cinnamon sprinkled around on my cabinets, behind appliances. I also sprinkled some on the track right outside my kitchen door. Cinnamon works really well.
