Thanks for the advice, Lyn! I will give the cinnamon and sand a try. I also hear flour is good as they'll eat it, and the flour will expand in their stomachs, which eventually will kill them. Do you think there's any truth to that?

I've heard that about cornmeal and ants..... don't know that it's true though.

probably hanging out with some riff-raff from a different magazine?

Any chance of an Avocadocam?...It sounds delightfully stoopid. :)
