Getting Ants out of the Garden

I kind of paraphrased what I am going to try this year, in the house and also in the garden.

  • Three parts vinegar one part water for perimeter of garden.

    Spray the mound if you can find it.
  • Freshly ground pepper in and around the plants in your garden.
  • Ground up chalk.
  • Spray first with vinegar if they are there and then when they are gone sprinkle the ground chalk.
  • Shake out a line of baby powder around the perimeter of the garden. Do not breathe the baby powder in if you can help it.
  • Cornmeal on an anthill will kill them because they can't digest the cornmeal.
  • If you can not kill them, put a jar of honey far away from the house and they will move to be closer to the honey. Watch out for Yogi bear.
  • :)

    The honey thing might attract a lot of bees but I might try it. MIGHT.
