I know there all kinds of do it yourselves for just about anything anymore. I constantly come across posts that say using vinegar will get rid of rids. Most folks don't realize that it takes a specific type of vinegar that is chemically dangerous and requires use of masks and gloves and protective gear, plus who knows how long it will stay in your soil and kill your newly emerging seed or seedlings.

I have a lot of ant hills. Some are big, some are little. Some a let stay because they are needed to pollinate certain plants if I want seed. The rest I get rid of.

I think I will give the recipe you found Tcs a try and see what happens. I did buy several boxes of grits to put on the hills and with all the rain it usually only takes a day or two to kill the whole nest if I put enough grits out.

That's good to know Misti as most folks wouldn't maybe think about how the butterflies, ladybugs and the bees would be attracted to the bait and poisoned right along with the pests. That is why it is important to know what chems your using and the potential problems down the line from using them.
