Killing ants with tobacco tea

Zone 98377 | Anonymous added on July 31, 2018 | Answered

Why do I need to discard the tobacco leaves, why not just pour the whole mixture into the ant hills? I literally have 10 or more hills of various dimensions on my property and none of them are near my vegetable garden or fruit trees nor my house. Thanks for you help. Lisa

The leaves could be picked up by animals or even humans and could be toxic to them.
