Ants in garden beds/compost piles
Talc based baby powder will make fire ants abandon their mound. Does the same for every ant hill I've tried it on (no expert on ants so I can't say what specific type of ants other than those awful fire ants).
I used it in the lawn when I lived in TX (cover the mound completely with it, go out about three inches around it, too - usually within 24 hours, the mound was abandoned).
If my compost pile or veggie garden has ants in it, anyone know of a reason talc based baby powder should NOT be used there?
Thanks in advance.
