What is the best way to kill ants outside?


I am not really having an indoor problem this year but outside everything I turn over seems to be loaded with tiny ants and their eggs. Help!

    I have small kittens though so afraid to do that and chickens too that could get to it if they got out which they sometimes do.

    Oh; I know I am sure gonna try it! Do you assume they mean any type corn meal for I would gladly buy the all purpose; I think it is courser and may work better; you think?

    Wow; thank you! Just any cornmeal? There are so many nests/eggs I'd have to flood the place but I will do the cornmeal. All I have is self-rising with maybe flour in it. I'd hate to be feeding them using the wrong thing. lol
