Green Q & A

antsHelp, Trish! I’ve got an ant attack all over my kitchen. Teeny teeny black ones. Do you know of any non-toxic solution?

GoGreenNation: Tell those ants to take a hike with these non-toxic treatments: Mix a little boric acid with honey to make a bait. They’ll carry it home where it will defeat the colony. Other effective remedies are diamataceous earth – I sprinkle it around the exterior of my house; spray neem seed oil mixed with water and a squirt of soap, also outside around the perimeter, doors and windows.

These tricks worked for me – hope they do the job for you, too!
