    Default peanut-free ant traps?

    who knew???
    raid uses peanut butter and peanut oil as their ant bait.

    we have a crazy any problem in out kitchen (awesome!! another fantastic thing about my house)

    and I spent an arm and a leg on ant traps and baits and etc. and opened it and smelled... peanutbutter.
    read the pkg and *allergy allert*
    oh the things I learn every day.

    anyway.
    do peanut-free ant baits exist or do I need to make my own????

    I'm not sure of a specific peanut free product but I will say that we had an ant problem at our place (old building) and they were carpenter ants which can't be killed with traps. We had to call the exterminator, before you spend the money maybe see what kind of ants they are that might help with the type of trap that will work. Good luck.

    I just use babypowder/corn starch to kill ants. We have a problem in the summer with them around out back door, so I sprinkle some there when I notice it and the ants squirm and die.
