Keep Your Home and Garden Free of Ants

Corn meal. Anywhere you see ants put a tablespoon of cornmeal. Ants can't digest cornmeal so it is the end of the line for any ant dining on cornmeal. Don't expect overnight success, cornmeal is not a can of raid. Maybe that's why they ate so much cornmeal in the pioneer days, no ants.
