Natural Ways To Get Rid Of Ants Without Using Pesticide - A Must Watch Video

There’s nothing like walking into your kitchen first thing in the morning, bleary eyed and ready for your morning cup of coffee only to find that your home has been invaded. Marching one-by-one in a seemingly endless stream, these tiny insects are one of life’s biggest pests and getting rid of them can be a huge pain.

Here are 7 natural methods that can be used to get rid of these irritating insects without filling your home, garden or yard with toxic chemical ant killers.

vinegar works by destroying the ants’ pheromone trails. You actually watch this effect in action by spraying a mixture of vinegar and water in a circle around a group of marching ants. Cut off from their scent markings, the line of ants will almost immediately break apart and the insects will start to wander aimlessly around, well and truly lost without their scent trail to direct them.

2.Fresh Garlic
Simply peel a clove or two of fresh garlic and place them near the ants. You can actually watch as the insects seem to bounce off of an invisible force-field around each clove and run away!
Eventually, a garlic clove will dry up and become ineffective, so you may need to replace dried up cloves with fresh garlic if ants return.
3.Baking soda.
while baking soda is great for humans, it wreaks havoc on ants by disrupting their bodies’ natural chemistry. Create your own natural ant bait by mixing equal parts baking soda and powdered sugar in a container and place it near the line of marching insects to attract them to your homemade bait. The ants will take it back to their nest, eat it and rapidly dwindle in numbers, thus saving your pantry and your sanity!

4.Borax repellent. Mix 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water and 1 tablespoon Borax in a lidded plastic container. Poke holes in the lid and pour a bit of sugar around the container. Doing so will lure the ants to the container and encourage them to fall into the trap.

5.Minty Fresh Cure: To repel ants in the kitchen and bathroom, place several drops of peppermint essential oil on cotton balls and place them on counter tops, in cabinets and pantry, near the garbage container, and other places that attract ants.

6.Use coffee grounds. Spread coffee grounds on ant hills and along your house foundation. This safe material confuses the worker ants because they lose their scent trails. This causes the hatched young in the ant colonies to have no food and starve.

7.Use bay laurel or bay leaves to keep ants from attractants. Ants are especially attracted to sugar, paprika, and flour. Put bay or bay laurel leaves in your sugar can, flour container, and paprika jar.
• Over time, the ant repelling strength of these leaves and lose potency. Replace every month for best results.
