Jul 5th 2011 3:49AM I once read a recipe for a natural ant killer. I have tried this and it seems to work. It is safe around kids and even if they eat it they will merely burp.
1/4 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of yeast
1/2 cup of molasses
Mix to a paste and spread on small pieces of cardboard or pasteboard. Place the papers near the source of the ants.
Why this kills them I do not know but I have a couple of theories.
They eat the yeast and die of terminal gas.
They take the yeast back to the nest and it ferments and spoils the rest of the food supply.
