  • Grated orange and grapefruit peelings on the mound.
  • Sprinkle grits on the mound. Ants are supposed to swell up and die after eating them.
  • Drench the mound with boiling water.
  • Carry a shovelful of ants from one mound to another and they will go to war and kill each other.
  • Sprinkle Copenhagen tobacco on top of the mound and worker ants will carry it below – then when the Queen comes up to spit, you stomp her to death!
  • Feed them beans, cover the mound with plastic and they will asphyxiate themselves!
