How is it that the grits get rid of the ants? Just curious as too how it works. Thank you in advance for your response!

Here in Canada we can't buy grits (to my knowledge). We use corn flour, which is basically the same thing.
The ants eat it. It swells up inside them and they burst. ( at least that's what I heard )
