Don't remember if yall solved the ant problem, but I ran across these two recipes that are sure to kill um dead in the garden.

Ant Control #1 -
4-5 tbsp. of cornmeal
3 tbsp. of bacon grease
3 tbsp. of baking powder
3 packages of yeast

Mix the cormeal and bacon grease into a paste, then add the baking powder and yeast. Dab the gooey mix on the insides of jar lids and set them near the anthills.

Or this -

Ant Control #2 -
1 cup of sugar
1 tbsp. of boric acid powder
3 cups of water

Add the sugar to 3 cups of water and bring to a boil. Then, add the boric acid. Place the mix in small jar lids and set the lids in the middle of ant trails or near hills. Keep out of the reach of pets or children.

That first one is an interesting recipe. Now don't tell me that the yeast starts some fermentation going and the ants blow up! I wonder why that system works? Maybe someone can shed some light on the reason. I'm gonna try it but I hope my wife doesn't find out that I'm using 3 packages of yeast.
