Big scare today

Lucie managed to get one of our cupboards open and ate the liquid in the ant trap... I panicked but luckily the emergency vet said she would be just fine. Ant traps are not harmful to dogs only the plastic which she didn't eat. I cried tears of joy when the vet told me over the phone it wasn't harmful to her. Needless to say I will never have another ant trap in my house every again!!!

What won't a puppy eat! There's barrier sprays you can use on the foundation of the house so they don't get in. I hate ants.

I think food grade diatomaceous earth works with ants?

It works great!!

I sprinkled it on some large ant hills in my yard, they were gone in a few days.

I took out a yellow jacket nest with DE. It just took some patience. (every night for about a week)

I bought a 50 pound bag if this stuff , I will be using it in anything I can. Can I put it on myself to keep away flies or Mosquitos?

Does not work for that. The garlic works so well on my dog I am ordering some Kyolic garlic for me though.
