Hi All,

Drawn by uneaten food, shed skins and other organic material, ants sometimes become pests around reptile, amphibian and invertebrate collections. As pesticides are harmful to humans and other creatures alike, eliminating ants in areas used by pets and people takes some care. Today I’d like to highlight a substance that I used with great success in various zoos, and which works equally well at home – diatomaceous earth.

I use diatomaceous earth to control ants and have been for years. Sprinkle it onthe ground where they enter your house, it cuts them between their exoskeleton segments and they dessicate and die
