I have a huge problem with ants! They are even bringing up sand under my driveway, lawn and near the sides of my house. I want something that is natural but will definitely kill them.

  • I normally try to find their nest and fill it with boiling water. I use boiling water on them in the house too and it works well.

  • Have you tried talcum powder? I think that if you want to kill them then go with a chimical instead of something natural.

  • I second ant rid as it takes the poison back to the nest.

  • If they are in your house, try putting ant rid in the path of them, and leave them too it, they will eat and take back to the nest. I did this and havent had another problem. If mainly outside, try finding the nests and boiling water down the holes.

  • a few drops of detergent mixed with water will do the trick, in a spray bottle!

  • I have the same problem. From nowhere our house is full of them.

  • Oh no. Not sure about natural but would love to see others opinions

  • Borax powder sprinkled over sand – grass & corners of house retells the ants they will get far away – if you can find the nest holes pour boiling water into hole The water will go down all the ant trails – killing the queen will make the ants go to a new region

  • Not sure if there is any natural way of doing it.
