Stain Removers for Ants

If you find that you are being invaded by those small ants, or even the larger ones, don't run to the store for ant killer, just run to your laundry room and get the commercial spray that you use for removing stains. Just spray it on them and on their trail and you will be rid of them in no time and it is not toxic to your kids and pets. The stain removal product contains borax and that is what kills the ants.

Ammonia and water in a spray bottle works, since they leave a ammonia trail, it kills them and confuses them at the same time...
Just spray the trail, kill the ones on it, and the new ones get confused and leave.

Find where they are coming in and sprinkle a row of talcum powder there and across your entry door step. They will not cross it. Make sure the powder has talcum in it. Believe me, they were driving me crazy last year and my daughter found this solution online. It worked.

A safe way to get rid of ants - sprinkle corn meal on the ant hills. The ants eat the corn meal, they cannot digest it and die. This solution is safe for kids and animals.

Borax is a poison. It is not particularly safe to use for anything other than laundry.

For ants inside your house use vinegar. This will clean the trail and also kill the ants you spray. Will not hurt kids or pets. Borax is poisonous to pets and kids.
