Non-toxic Ant killer

carolssis(9)August 2, 2005

mix 1 tbsp. sugar, 1 tbsp. molasses, 1 tbsp. dry yeast.

Set out in areas where ants are. They eat it, take it back to the nest and it kills every ant who eats it. The sugar and molasses attract them, the yeast swells up and kills them. Non toxic to plants, kids, animals, although they could get a tummy ache. Good luck to all, this has worked great for me, black or red ants.

Pre-formulated commercial baits for ants contain non-toxic materials and are safe to use.

Yesterday I put out just plain dry yeast and they're taking it like crazy!

Just like feeding ants rice, baking soda, grits, and any number of other things that is supposed to make them explode when they digest it just does not happen.
