No More Ants!

I posted last week about the large ant hill in our backyard.  I have been checking on it everyday and the ants are gone!  They haven’t tried to rebuild in the same spot and I haven’t found them anywhere else in the yard.

You can see the circle where I put the sugar/baking soda mixture, that seemed to burn the grass. The boiling water with cayenne pepper killed the grass (it may have been in combination with the frost we had that night).  It shouldn’t be an issue to get new grass to grow there this early in the year.  I would definitely use these methods again if more ants move into our yard.  I didn’t have to buy anything, I had it all in the house already.  And most importantly I didn’t have to worry about chemicals around our dog.
