I’ve been searching for some all natural ways to get rid of ants for a while now. We have a lot of fire ants down here in Georgia as well as many other kinds of ants. These buggers keep showing up in our home, in the chicken pen, in the dog’s food, and in our garden!
And there are ant hills everywhere! I think ants are going to take over the world. They are the true zombie apocalypse! Isn’t that kind of more terrifying than the walking dead?
Anyway, it feels like that’s possible sometimes here. If left undisturbed their ant hills can get to 3 feet wide and over a foot tall. Something must be done to get rid of these ants!
But I really hate the thought of broadcasting poison where I could expose my children, my dog, and my chickens to nasty chemicals that could make them sick. So I’ve been looking for some all natural options for ant control that I can try.
Turns out there are tons of ideas for controlling ants that don’t involve using chemicals.
