Thoroughly clean all rooms of the home.
The first step in combating ants is a thorough cleaning of all areas where they gather. It is best to do this with the usual detergent and water.
- Cinnamon Powder
Ants do not receive well the intense smell of cinnamon, so, insert a cinnamon powder on the trails where ants move.
- Table Salt
Mix a few tablespoons of table salt with boiling water and stir. After cooling, put this mixture in a sprayer and spray around. Salt surface prevents ants from entering the home.
- White Vinegar
Apply the vinegar using a sprayer because you need to mix equal amounts of vinegar and water, so the best way to do it is in a spray bottle. Spray on the places where you have noticed ants.
- Chalk or Powder for Kids
Crumble a crayon and put it on a location where there are ants. The same can be done with powder for kids.
