10 Easy Tips for Controlling Outdoor Pests


Prevent Ants from Intruding

If you're worried about the ants that have built mounds near your home's foundation making their way into your abode, try sprinkling their ant hill with cornmeal or dry grits. This is only a tip for those who, when they see a roach inside, don't think twice before grabbing a shoe to smack the creepy crawly and never think to get a jar and release it outside. That's because these grains absorb a lot of moisture and rapidly expand, so once the tiny ants consume them, well, they most likely won't need another meal -- ever.
