Just yesterday I was reading about ants on the Garden Web. An entomologist there basically said you'd just be feeding the ants larvae. He said:
"Grits do not make ants explode. Adult ants can not consume solids, unless the solids are microscopic in size. Adults feed solids to their larvae which ingest the solds. Then the adults feed of liquid secretions from the larvae.
Many times people think the things they used on the ants worked, because they no longer see the ants, when in reality the ants just moved to another spot or are resting underground after eating all the grits and things the humans gave them."
