Feeding ant killer to a kid that ate ants is not generally accepted practice

Do not store chemicals in soft drink bottles, do not leave nicotine chewing gum near children, and do not give your child ant-killer if they have just eaten ants.

These are some of the tips from the Dunedin-based National Poisons Centre, which receives about 35,000 calls, and thousands more internet inquiries, each year.

But ant-killer?

“Yes,” said office manager Lucy Shieffelbien. Staff once received a call from a mother who was so concerned about “ants jiggling inside” her child, she fed them ant-killer.
