Ants can sometimes cause havoc and if you are sick of using the chemical store bought preparations, you can probably try the natural ways for getting rid of ants!
TEA TREE OIL – Place a few drops on a cotton ball and wipe on baseboards and other entry points. You can also leave a tea tree-infused cotton ball in cabinets and other areas as needed. Repeat every few days until ants are completely gone.
CITRUS OILS – Citrus oils contain d-limonene, which is toxic to ants. These oils can be used the similar way as tea tree oil.
DIATOMACIOUS EARTH – Gently sprinkle a thin layer in places ants are likely to be: on windowsills, beneath the fridge, under cabinets, garbage cans, etc.
VINEGAR – Add 1/4 cup white or apple cider vinegar and 1/4 cup water to a spray bottle. Add few drops of clove essential oil. Shake bottle, then spray around baseboards, entry points for ants and just about anywhere you’ve seen ants. Repeat every few days until ants are completely gone.
BAKING SODA+CASTOR SUGAR – the powdered sugar attracts the ants and the baking soda kills them. Mix 1 part sugar with 1 part baking soda and then place your mixture in shallow lids wherever you see ants.
