In my wanderings about the internet, stumbled upon this little blog article, and was amazed by the photos, but not surprised.
Using Aspartame For Ant/Roach Bait
(Stephanie Relfe - Health,Wealth & Happiness) I had heard of a woman who made up ant poison from aspartame, and since we in Florida were being
invaded by ants, I decided to make up some ant poison of my own. I decided the best way to get them to eat it was by mixing it with raw honey. I mixed
roughly 3 or 4 parts raw honey to 1 part aspartame and put it out in a toy baby saucer for them.
Sure enough, pretty soon, the saucer was FULL of dead ants.
The article then goes onto to describe the lady laying a pile of aspartame dir4ectly on the floor, and the ants covered the pile of aspartame with
debris and such as a WARNING to other ants the stuff is deadly!
The article further goes on to state this is normal behavior for ants, to cover up dangerous substances as a warning to other ants to steer clear.
I found this to be a very interesting article, it is the first time I have heard of using aspartame as a pest killer. She states it made her
cockroaches so lethargic she could just scoop and flush them!!
Yet in America, we have mothers giving little Sally Diet Soda all day long, so she loses weight!!
Now, in the article the lady claimed her cock roaches were so lethargic she could scoop and flush and them.
Are we making our kids scoop-n-flushable, too?
And, for whom?
Has anyone else heard of this method of extermination?
Does anyone else see a deadly parrallel with in our own species, except for one sad deviation, with the ants?
At least the ant mothers are smart enough to try and hide the poison from their babies.
