Re: (no subject) ......It's about ants

Narda asked...
"...Anyone know a good way to get rid of ants without using chemicals?  N...."

Hi Narda,
I don't want to depress you, but I believe ants are more intelligent than humans and they ALWAYS
have plan 'B - Z' up their leg even when you pour petrol [gas] on the ground under a pot.  I had
previously tried the ever available 'ant powder', so tried this in desperation a few years ago when
they invaded a v. attractive container that I was using for a hosta above grassed soil.  I changed
the medium in the container to mainly soil and added 2 inches of gravel at the base.  This reduced
their invasion of the container but, next year, their 5 star living quarters returned below!!
One of my sons informs me that they are delicious fried in garlic butter...is your family ready for
this high protein addition to their diet??
