Natural Ant Killer

So your looking for a Natural ant killer ebook are you?  There are so chemical pesticides in our local stores these days that many of us just assume these products are what works best.  But in reality, there are many green, natural and safe alternatives which do just as good a job or better.  So I’m here today to show you one natural ant killer that really works.  It works so good that it should kill carpenter ants, fire ants, sugar ants and many other species of ants.

Organic Ant Killer Recipe

I want you to try using instant grits to kill your pesky ants today.  That’s right, go to your store and buy one (72) ounce box of instant grits or two of the Quaker Super Family Size (36 oz.) instant grits. Grits are a dry, very small white corn bit that expands and softens when boiled in water.  Grits are a common food item in the south and can be found in most southern style diners, especially ones that serve breakfast but people around the country are finding the great uses and taste of grits.

However, you are not going to boil these grits, they only work if kept dry. This method works best if you can find the ant nest or mounds and sprinkle the instant grits all around the ant mounds. If rain is expected or the ground is wet, you should avoid using this treatment, because when the grits get wet, they will expand and no longer work to kill ants. The grits need to stay dry, so that after the ants eat them, then the grits will expand in the ants stomach’s and kill them creating a natural ant killer..

Application Instructions

Grab your instant grits and begin by walking the yard or area where you are having an ant problem.  At every dirt mound you find, pour a generous portion of instant grits around each ant dirt mound and then leave the area undisturbed. It really is that easy.

Do not dampen or wet the instant grits before or after the application. Use this technique only on clear sunny days, because it is very important to keep the instant grits dry before and after use or application.

Grits will not kill ants on contact like your store’s commercial pesticides do.  They work best if given 24 to 48 hours of exposure, this is because grits are not toxic or poisonous and they need time to expand inside the ant. You should see results beginning within the first twenty-four hours and within forty-eight hours the ant colony should be completely destroyed.  This natural ant killing tip is best advised to use only outdoors and on dry, sunny days.

Warning

Avoid the use of instant grits around ducks and geese.  Ducks and geese cannot release the gases created by the grits and the grits can also expand inside their stomach just like the ants and cause death.  It’s a good idea to prevent any of your pets from eating the grits.

Carpenter Ants

If you’re looking for information on those pesky ants that are showing up everywhere in and around your house, there’s a good chance that those are carpenter ants.

Typically, you’ll find carpenter ants near the outside, or on the inside of a wooden structure, they like moist wood. It is easy to identify them, carpenter ants are large, from 1/4″ to 3/8″ inches long, dark brown to black, some have red or slightly yellow coloration. All carpenter ants have a bent antennae, and a slim waist..  The female is identified by looking for small wings on the back, usually seen in the spring when the ants swarm.  Although carpenter ants can vary in size and color, the most common you will see are the black ones.. If you are noticing mass amounts of them around your house in the spring time, that’s because it is mating season and they are out looking for love.

Even though carpenter ants are found in and around wood, they are not the same as termites as they do not ingest wood.  Carpenter ant females are commonly mistaken for termites but carpenter ants have a narrow waist, bent elbow shaped antennae and smaller wings. Carpenter ants can cause structural damage to the wood, much like termites, but not nearly to the same extent. They prefer dark, moist areas like hollow wood where they can use the area and the wood itself to nest and breed.

If you can see excavated wood and carpenter ants are showing up in and around your structure, you can probably count on it being infested. Due of the nature of the nesting, it is extremely difficult to get rid of all the carpenter ants completely because it would be hard to actually find every single nest.

There are a few things you can do to help prevent an inestation of carpenter ants though. Whenever possible, keep your wood structure free of contacting soil and dampness. Also, do not stack wood against your building, and keep it free from holes, cracks, and dampness.

Types Of Ants: An Introduction

Types Of Ants

Types Of Ants

There are several types of ants in the world living in various areas from our backyard all the way to the rainforests. You can even find ants in some of the hottest deserts on Earth.

All ants live in colonies and any one colony that you might happen to stumble upon could have over a million ants!

There are quite a number of different types of ants, but some of the more well known ones that you might have heard of or come across are driver ants, army ants, honeypot ants, leafcutter ants, silver ants, fire ants, weaver ants, and bulldog ants.

Then, there are types of ants within each colony, meaning groups of ants that have a specific job to do in the heirarchy. Those are worker ants and soldier ants. All of them are led by one single ant that is the queen.

Although many types of ants will seem to act somewhat the same, their behaviour actually depends on their type. For example, army ants and driver ants don’t have permanent nests like many other types of ants.
The size of different types of ants can vary a great deal as well, ranging anywhere between 2 and 25 millimeters. Most of the time we associate ants as being brown, but there are also many red and black ants as well.

Did you know that some types of ants are eaten by humans and considered a delicacy? Honeypot ants are and example and that’s because they have oversized abdomens.

So where do ants live? Well, you’ve seen anthills and know that some types of ants live in the ground, but not all do. Weaver ants, for example, make their nests in trees by sewing leaves together with silk-producing larvae.

Ants are one of the most common living creatures on earth and although very small, can pose a serious threat to people and animals they tangle with.
