    hey everyone, i'm in need of help!

    It would seem its ant season and even though my apartment is on the 5th floor, the ants have made it all the way! I've asked the locals for advice and all i get told is to blast them with as many chemicals as i can get my hands on. Thing is , i don't want to do that, i'm asmathic, i don't like the idea of living in apartment recking of chemicals!

    There must be a non toxic way surely??? Help!

    Borax and sugar should should be ok.

    corn syrup laced with borax works wonders too as a bait for small ants.......or you can buy a commercial version called Terro

    Place the mixture on a piece of foil for easy clean up.

    We had a rash of ants this summer who were there for water.......this made them go away in a few days and gave my husband until the weekend to tighten the plumbing.

    Diatomaceous earth mixed w chrysanthemum powder. It sticks to ants as they walk through, and wears holes into the exoskeletons. They are feet up in minutes. It's a totally natural product. It also works inside walls and keeps working as long as there is any powder left.

    Try diatomaceous earth. It is like razor blades to an insect.
