We are always amazed at the topics that generate a significant response from our listeners; in this case ants!

Suggestions from listeners:
Complete compiled list of recommendations from the hosts, listeners and Rosie on the House exterminations partners.

  • Small Apple slices (kills the queen ant due to digestive problems)
  • Corn meal (may harm bird digestion, use with caution)
  • Grits (safe for bird digestion)
  • Cinnamon (deterrent only)
  • Avon Skin So Soft in a spray bottle, diluted with water

Organic eradication products

Common over-the-counter ant poisons:

  • Amdro (FDA approved formula and less toxic than table salt)
  • Max Force (FDA approved formula)

Suggestions from The Formula Book: (NOT Recommended by Rosie on the House.)

  • Kerosene (may harm soil for planting) mixed with Moth Crystals (more toxic than moth balls to kill certain bugs)
