Got a moment? Let's Talc

Rainy season and the crawlers are in search of dryer residences. I have been using talc (baby powder) quite successfully for many years
 
There are alternatives to baby powder, some hazardous to humans and pets, others take days for results.
I've sprayed a number of ant colonies with baby powder and the colonies disappeared within a matter of minutes.   
Important to remember when using baby powder as a perimeter guard. The powder is only effective when loose.  During high humidity the powder tends to solidify, making it ineffective. To remedy this take a straw broom or brush and loosen the powder

Excellent video. I have ants coming into the room here at Chokdee . Some fairly gruesome methods to kill ants . The corn meal sounds like a torture for particularly unfriendly ants.
