Natural Ant Killer

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.

    I can’t get grits here in Newfoundland, Canada, but I was wondering would flax seeds work just as good?

  4. Theresa says:

    try DRY Yeast powder, make sure it does not get Wet , use on sunny days.
    U can mis it with a little powdered sugar to attract ants, Place it in a plastic lid near mound.
    Ants will eat the bait , yeast rises, POP goes the ant.

  7. Christina says:

    Thank you so much! I sprinkled grits all over my yard and then the next day I watered it thinking it was time. The ants just laughed at me. So, are you saying that I should just let the water thing happen by itself? How long do I have to wait before I can water the lawn?

    Thanks Again,

    Christina

    I have a major invasion of ants, they are inside everywhere. A bit of food is groundswell then I find them in the entire area, on the floor, coming in through the back door, no shoes allowed inside. I must have all natural thus saw grits but do they work in side.

    I now believe I have ant bites. Please advise, thank you

    cucumber slices around the perimeter of your house will keep ants out of the house

    For sugar ants…try pouring splenda along a small area of the base board where you notice the ants. Leave over night. Not sure what it does to them but I haven’t seen them since.

  11. Rhonda says:

    I have tried vinegar, it works great but you have to keep things clean and keep appling it, and vinegar makes the ants disappear, but this year due to rains and warm weather, and dead wood, we now have carpenter ants and fire ants and sugar ants and brown ants, and with the warm weather, they are showing up in long lines on the pourch, and at the door, they like to crawl up the wood siding and crawl into the inbetween walls, and come out inside the house, in some of the weirdest places. Grits and Cornmeal sounds like a great Idea, meal is to ants as peanutbutter is to rats…I will try it and let ya all know the results.
    Makes sense if ya get them outside, they wont make it inside….hmmm.

  12. M says:

    Oh please, let’s try not to be so ignorant of the way that ants’ biology works. Adult ants are not physically capable of ingesting solid food. They bring the solid food back to the larvae. The larvae process the food, then secrete liquid nutrients, which the adults feed off of.
    Hence, why poison ant food sold by professionals is always LIQUID.

    Question: Do Grits Kill Fire Ants?

    “I’ve heard that you can use grits to get rid of fire ants. The ants eat the grits, and the grits swell up inside their stomachs and cause them to explode. Is that true?”
    Answer:

    This home remedy probably originated from ant bait products, which often use corn grits as the carrier for the chemical bait. No, grits alone will not kill fire ants.

    Adult ants can’t eat solid food, including grits. Ants bring food back to the colony, where they feed it to their larvae. Fire ant larvae can chew and process the solids. The larvae then regurgitate the partially digested food for their adult caretakers. The adult ants then consume the liquefied nutrients. So there’s no chance that the stomach will explode.

    But don’t take my word for it. Researchers proved that grits are ineffective for controlling or eliminating fire ant colonies in several studies, including the following:

  14. Isabel says:

    I just researched it and GRITS do not kill ants. I was wondering why I was getting more ants! Then I googled it and VOILA, it is not true! Research states not true. But when I grinded lemon peels and orange peels with a little neem oil and citrus oil in a blended and poured into a gallon of water, then sprayed in my garden, the ants went away!

  15. Isabel says:

    I also used cinnamon and cayenne pepper and cucumbers, ants hate cucumbers!

  18. Kimberly Devine-Brink says:

    I’ve never been overtaken by ants, but we had hundreds of tiny ants come into an upstairs shower. I shook about two or three tablespoons crushed red pepper all over the shower and around the outside of it… just covered it with crumbs and flakes. I waited two days, because I was a bit freaked out, but then I wiped everything away: no ants. They never came back.
