Want To Keep Ants Away? Draw A Chalk Line


This is bizarre and the first time I’m hearing out it. Did you know that ants won’t cross a chalk line? Apparently, there is something they don’t like about the smell or the feel of the powder on their feet. So, if you are getting infested and need a quick solution while waiting for help, whip out a piece of chalk.

This town ain’t big enough for the two of us….

  1. Yep, knew that!:-) back in the days, when i was little , we’d visit our grandma house very often and she had lots and lots of ants all around. We did the chalk lines around the house and in summer kitchen i remember. What i don’t remember is that my grandma is saying that i was eating ants, lots of them l just like eating an ice-cream. Thank god i can’t remember doing it!
