The last thing you want is bugs inside your house, yet living in South Florida seems to mean this is all but guaranteed to happen from time to time. While a roach entering every once in awhile is gross but easy to get rid of, a colony of ants is a whole different story. Ants can be a big nuisance inside your home, getting into the pantry and ruining food. It is best to take action as soon as you start seeing the first ants appear in or around your home. Here’s a few methods to try once you start to see trails of ants along your kitchen counter:
#1 Spray lemon water
Lemon water is a non-chemical, but effective home remedy that has been used to get rid of ants for many generations. Simply mix some lemon juice with water and spray the mixture at the area affected by the ant invasion, like in corners of the pantry. Stay up with it though; you may have to spray the area a few times a day to ensure the effectiveness of this particular method.
#2 Use vinegar to block ant’s path
Many homeowners have unused vinegar sitting around in the kitchen. Vinegar tends to work well for all sorts of pest problems, especially ants. Similar to the lemon juice, mix some vinegar with water and spray the resulting mixture around the ant’s trail. The strong scent of the vinegar will repel the ants.
#3 Hire Exterminators
Once you start to see ants, it’s imperative that you begin to fight them right away with professional help. If your natural method don’t get rid of them, it’s best to hire a pest control service to treat your home, and make sure the bugs are completely gone.
