Hmmm.... I guess you can step on them and use salt when necessary. :) I don't really have experience because I don't deal with my garden personally.... :P

I have taught a number of organic gardening courses and my research and practice has found that white flour, 2% milk or the solution made from boiling uncut tobacco and then sprayed onto the infected plants all work great. Ants can be killed by coursely grindng white rice and sprinkling around the anthill.

You really need to identify the pest first to determine what action to take. You need to treat insects at the right time of year to get a proper kill.
