As we are God’s favorite creations, he has given us powerful brains that we can use at our disposal.These brains allow us to be creative so that we can come up with innovative ways to resolve our problems once and for all. God wants us to use our powers for the right reasons so that we can make this world a better place for us and the future generations. As the season is changing, our houses will attract unwanted guests, such as ants. These bugs can damage our houses. If we don’t remove them from the vicinity, they will cause a lot of problems in the future. The first measure is to ensure that your house is neat and clean. However, these methods are not always effective in keeping ants out of your household. Here are five natural methods that you can use to remove ants.
Borax: Mix one teaspoon of water, two tablespoons of sugar, two teaspoons of peanut butter, and one teaspoon of borax. Pour it into a container and make holes in the vessel. When the ants find this mixture, they will carry it back home. Over time, the borax will kill the ants.
Cinnamon: Mix cinnamon oil and water and apply it in places that are visited by ants frequently. As ants hate the smell of cinnamon, they will leave that area.
Food-grade diatomaceous earth: Food-grade diatomaceous earth has sharp edges which will pierce through the ant’s exoskeleton, which will kill them eventually. Sprinkle it in places that ants enter your house and live such as windowsills, cabinets, and trashcans.
Peppermint: You can also get rid of ants by spraying peppermint oil in your house as it repels them. You can also leave dried peppermint around to stop them from entering your house.
Vinegar: Combine distilled vinegar, water, and lemon essential oil in a spray bottle. Spray it in areas where there are ants, to get rid of them.
