7. Not so much with ants. That's more for slugs.

 

It's just a highly abrasive sand-like substance that rips them open. Slugs die. Ants will just go around it or over it. Same with roaches. Boric acid is taken back to the nest and causes them to explode from the inside (gross, I know, but true). It kills the entire nest, including the queen. DE is a mixed bag. It will take care of nasty things but will also kill earth worms. I won't use it.
