    You could try DE in their food. Hasn't been proven to work, but some people swear by it.

    Diatomaceous Earth. It's an all natural and safe to eat insect killer. You can find it at lowes with the insecticides usually. Just make sure it says food grade. They make another kind for putting in swimming pools that would be toxic to eat.
