HOW TO GET RID OF ANTS IN THE KITCHEN
Let’s be clear, ants though harmless, can become quite an issue when it comes to being present in the house. It can be irritating to see and have ants around your kitchen, your walls and even ants crawling and feeding on your food! Not only that, but can you imagine the damage that can be caused by a colony of ants living inside a house? It can not only cause structural problems, but they can also be a cause for transfer of bacteria and such. Some ants though like the Fire or Harvester kind can even bite humans which causes a very itchy irritation and soreness on the skin. Although, there are other ants that are known not to cause harm to humans but can very much cause damage to house structures and the like. And just like cockroaches, ants have the capacity to spread germs and bacteria which can in the end, contaminate your food.
Ants carry bacteria that they can transfer from one place to another, either from dirty to food, from trash to an open wound. Which is why it is still very important to keep an eye on them. We understand the frustration of how irritating it can be to see ants enter from different sots in your house, especially during the summer. They sometimes even live in our houses as if they are the ones primarily living in it!
There are many ways on how you can get rid of these creatures in your house, one thing that you can absolutely do is to maintain the cleanliness of your house. And that means clearing out the trash regularly, sweeping the floors for any food crumbs, wiping the kitchen counters for any spills and of course by storing your food properly and preferably with air tight containers.
This is basically one of the most effective methods on how to get rid of ants. Chalk is high in a substance called calcium carbonate which is very much what makes it effective in repelling the ants. All you have to do is spray or draw a line using a chalk in the entry and exit points where you can usually detect the ants.
What better item to use than those you can easily get a hold of, right? All you have to do is squeeze a lemon or place lemon peels on the places where there are most ants. Also, you can mix the lemon juices with what you use to clean your floors with in order to keep the ants away. Apparently, ants don’t like the smell of lemon juice and it is sure to keep them away.
