Ants will not cross a chalk line! I've tried it and it really works!

It's easier to say what we believe than be what we believe

Becca, I like the idea of grits since I wouldn't have to worry about any of the neighbors pets!

Grits!!! Pour some on the hill or around where you see them. The grits will kill them when they eat them. It takes less than a day. It is all I use because it is completely safe for animals.

And the wages of sin is death.

Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift:

that saves is faith in Him.

also spreading out fresh coffee grounds detours ants. It needs to be refreshed weekly though but natural no chemicals.

I have found that ants won't cross a line of cinnamon. I tried it by an anthole in my driveway and it does seem to work well, but I don't know how it would work inside the house.

Life is too short for negative drama & petty things.
So laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly!

The best things in life are unseen, that's why we close our eyes when
we kiss, sleep, & dream.

Yeah I know it's an odd thing to post on the Rescued Dog and Cat team, but we were discussing this very same thing on another post and I thought the ideas were interesting. See what you think.
