This easy, cheap, humane, and 100% natural solution is for you!
There are a great many bug sprays and baits that can be used, but these can cause skin irritation and reactions, especially in young children. Many of the sprays are also toxic to household pets.
Use cinnamon and mint.
Ants hate the smell of these two things. You don’t need to lay bait or deal with their dead bodies. Just put a few sticks of cinnamon where you see ants, or grow mint plants around your house, and they will leave entirely on their own accord.
No nasty chemicals. No irritation. No fuss. No harm to your pets. And no dead bodies to sweep up.
What could be easier?
Other natural things which deter ants are eucalyptus, garlic, peppermint, vinegar, rosemary, and thyme.
Garlic can be a bit strong for some people, so only use the ones which make your house smell like you want it to.
A house that smells of lavender, cinnamon, and mint – something that is pleasant and desirable in its own right, plus it wards off those pesky ants very effectively!
