Ants make their way into homes this at time of the year. Although they may not pose a direct threat to your health, ants can still be bothersome. If you don’t take any action, they will soon start taking over your house. In other words, the faster you react, the easier it will be to eliminate the problem. The easiest way to eliminate ants from your home is to use pesticides. If you don’t want to do that, then here are several natural pest control methods that you can use instead.
The acidic nature of lemon juice messes up the ants’ tracking system. Since ants rely on their tracking system to find their way back to their nest, messing up with their route will confuse them and make them easier to eliminate. Spray lemon juice around door frames, windows, wall cracks, and other areas where ants have been spotted.
Cinnamon essential oil is a natural ant repellent. Spray around windowsills and door frames so that you protect your home from a rather nasty ant invasion. One of the great things about cinnamon essential oil is that it is very easy to clean afterward.
Another great ant repellent is peppermint essential oil. Besides the fact that it keeps ants away, it also makes your home smell really nice.
