HOW TO GET RID OF ANTS NATURALLY OUTSIDE
We understand the importance of having a controlled pest free environment for your family. While there are a lot of pests you might have to deal with in keeping your home free from any infestations, ants are particularly the ones that can pretty much be found almost anywhere. Which is why it is important to know and understand how you can properly keep them away from your house and your family for a cleaner environment. Here are some ways we’ve listed on how you can deal with them.
Tea Tree Oil
Your kitchen is probably the best place ants would love to hang out to if they were to go to your house, simply because of the variety of food that can be found there. Well, here’s how you can keep your food items safe. Simply apply or spray in drops of tea tree oil on the areas where you most often see the ants to trail into. Another way you can do this is by simply mixing in 10 drops of lemon oil with peppermint oil and tea tree oil and then use this mixture on the areas where you notice the most presence of the ants are.
Yes, you read that right. When it comes to dealing and eliminating ants, apparently powder is the one item that works best with it. While you may love the scent of baby powders and the like, ants seem to really stay away from this substance simply because their exoskeletons are not able to take it. Powders have a strong drying effect on things and apparently, exoskeletons are one of those.
Used Coffee Grounds
For those of you has coffee makers at home, then this method is for you. If you’re thinking that used coffee grounds from your daily coffees have no use anymore then you’re wrong. Coffees have a strong smell which is what makes them somehow useful for deterring ants from your home. Simply sprinkle the dried coffee grounds around the plants, your gardens and mini lawns in order to distract and disrupt the scent trails of the ants.
One basic ingredient that you can use in order to get rid of ants in your home is probably salt. Just like powder substances, salts have the capacity to dry out and dehydrate small insects such as ants. Also because salt is easily absorbed by almost anything, therefore making it very dangerous for small species such as the latter. To use salt, simply sprinkle table salt where you see the presence of ants the most in your home.
