For those of you who are having ant problems this season - - and who also hate pesticides - - I recently discovered that my trusty Oxine (bleach) works on ants! I keep a spray bottle of Oxine mixed with water at a very strong cleaning strength under my kitchen sink, and when I saw ants on the kitchen shelf I grabbed the bottle and just started spraying. It seemed to mess up their scent trail, and it also killed ants on contact. . . . and no worrying about getting pesticides near my food! I just wipe up and I'm good to go. Hope that helps other BYC folks!
