Eggshells Agitate Ants

Here is a fun fact for you and a reason to save your eggshells.  For some reason, eggshells agitate ants enough to relocate them. The process is simple, really and cheap.  For the most part, it works wonderfully to push ant hills out of an area or discourage them from going into an area.

What Does This Do?

  • Ants try to start to pick up the pieces.
  • If the pieces keep reappearing they give up and relocate.
  • The process agitates them enough to abandon an area.
  • The eggshells are organic and compost back into the soil.
