Exterminator Reveals Cheap Secret: Never see ants in your home again

As were nearing the end of spring the weather is getting better, warmer, and more enticing. This weather though comes with problems as it also entices ants and other pests who are intruding your home and looking for your food. Pest control services are helpful, but can also be expensive. Luckily, there are many effective ways to get rid of ants by yourself.

The first step in managing ant issues is to prevent them from getting in your home. Ants have a very strong sense of smell and love sugary things, so dont leave food unprotected on the counter or in the cupboards because they will find it very easily. Even an opened, empty can of soda will attract ants because of the sugar left on the rim, so rinse containers that have been in contact with food before you put them in the trash or in the recycling bin.

Sometimes ants find a way to your food even if you keep your home clean and your food tucked away. Here are some natural homemade tricks you can try to keep ants at bay.

Ants will avoid places that are scented with cinnamon.

Mix cinnamon essential oil with water

Soak a cotton ball or a cloth in the mixture

Wipe your counters and other areas where you spot ants

Repeat once a day until the ants disappear

You can also leave cinnamon cloves near doors and windows

Vinegar is another natural ingredient whose smell repels ants.

Mix equal parts of distilled vinegar and water in a spray bottle

Add a few drops of lemon essential oil

Shake well before each use

Spray around baseboards and places where you see ants

Repeat daily until ants are gone

The trick of this recipe is not to repel but to attract ants so that theyll want to take the food back to their nest and share it. The borax that hides in the food will ultimately kill all of them.

2 tablespoons peanut butter

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon borax

1 teaspoon water

Plastic container with lid

Sharp object to poke holes

Mix all ingredients in the container

Seal with lid and poke a few holes through the lid and the sides of the container so only ants can get in and out
