If a nearby anthill is causing you anxiety, here’s a simple solution for eliminating ants.

If anthills are located where they cause problems, feed the ants grits. That’s right — grits, the breakfast food. Sprinkle some dry grits around the anthill. The ants will eat the grits, drink some water, and then swell up and explode.

You’ll see results in as little as 24 hours, and entire anthills will be gone in days. Trust me; you really can kill ants with grits!
