I am looking for a 'non-toxic to humans and pets' method of dealing with them. I saw over the weekend that the commercial ant baits contain arsenic (yikes!) and boric acid, neither of which I want around the toddler and the kitty.
I'd love something that will eradicate the little nasties, but will settle for a repellant of some type, if that is all I can have. We don't drink brewed coffee, so coffee grounds are out of the question. We also live in a very old home and I wouldn't even want to think of how many cracks and crevices may be allowing them in. It's usually a short-lived problem, so I don't want to do a massive amount of work to deal with them.
Any ideas? Recipes for bait that will kill them, or repellant ideas?
