toothpaste for ANT blocker?

so we have had an infiltration of ants into our kitchen lately. i found the entrance point. since we have a toddler that eats off the floor ALL the time (you know yours does too!) i didn't want to use regular bug killer. so i took some toothpaste an spread it on the hole like a caulk. WORKED LIKE A CHARM!!! that is my green, baby safe works for me wednesday tip!

try it!

We wrote about green ant control methods over at the Green Baby Guide, but we didn't think of toothpaste! Brilliant!

You may be interested in our blog carnival, which starts tomorrow. It's called "Thrifty Green Thursday."
