We often face the problem in which the tiny worker insects invade our homes. After they invade our homes we all struggle to eliminate them. Luckily there is always an easy method to do anything.
Home remedies sometimes work the best. Ants are repelled by most acids and spices.
They can’t bear the strong and pungent smell of this acid. Also beware of the different materials you spray on a vinegar mixture to. It might bleach or stain certain surfaces.
All you need to do is apply a lemon mix into any thresholds or openings where you know the ants can enter. You can also leave the lemon peel in cupboards and corners.
Spices such as cinnamon and peppers can work nicely. The scents that get left behind are too strong and pungent for the ants that they’ll try to avoid the area completely. All you will need to do is sprinkle the skillet in the drawers or in the crack right by the steps and in the corners before your doorways.
Spices aren’t the only grounded repellent you can use. Coffee is also a relatively acidic home remedy that may be sprinkled in your backyard. This is also a beneficial solution to keep stray cats and rats away.
Cucumber peels or scents drive ants crazy. They avoid this water based vegetable wherever possible. You can leave the peel near the windows and doors where the ants enter or you can have essential oils applied around your house.
Additionally, there are some alkaline substances you may use. Neither do they enjoy baking powder by itself and soapy products.
It’s also important to not forget to keep your home clean especially around the sink. There could be some remnants of food on the plate that you put in the sink in addition to a small body of water that the ants can get to. You can add a couple of drops of peppermint into the sink to keep the ants at bay.
