Dried Bay Leaves - Make ants disappear, FOREVER! The absolute BEST was to get rid of ANTS! Take a handful of dried bay leaves and grind them in a blender until they have turned to a fine powder. Sprinkle anywhere you are having problems with ants. Indoors or out! I do this to keep the ants off of my hummingbird feeder. The best part is it works for months and will not kill the ants or other creatures, but makes them go away. Safe to use around pets and children...will have to try this.
