6. The Nitty Gritty
If you’ve got an ant problem, a sure-fire way to get rid of those suckers is to kill the queen. Keep an eye on that weather forecast, and when you’re expecting rain, sprinkle dry grits onto the anthill. The workers will bring the grits to the queen, and when she drinks the rainwater, the grits will expand in her stomach.
7. Keep a Lid On It
Anyone with a kitchen composting setup has probably dealt with fruit flies. The key to keep them out of your house is to use a compost bucket with a lid. Emptying the bucket into an outside bin every couple of days helps, too, if you have that as an option.
The same goes for your trash and recycling bins. Keep those things covered, and empty often!
