    I have heard that the plain instant grits sprinkled around will solve the ant problem. It is said the the ants will take them to the den where the Queen is. The ants eat the grits, and then explode due to the swelling of the grits..

    If you use any type of liquid soap and put in a hose sprayer and spray the problem spot the ants will be killed. The soap coats them and they suffocate almost immediately. You may have to spray several times but it is environmentally friendly.
