How to Get Rid of Ants?

If you have ants in your house, there are a few ways to get rid of them:

* Make an ant trap by dissolving 2–3 teaspoons of sugar in one cup of water. Moisten paper towels or sponges in the sugar water and set out overnight. The next morning, sweep the trap and the ants into a dustpan.

* You can also spray windowsills, door thresholds, counters, cabinets and other surfaces with a mixture of equal parts white vinegar and water.

* Sprinkle cayenne pepper and cinnamon on surfaces where ants gather.

* Spread grits, flour or ashes over ant trails and ants will soon find somewhere else to walk.

* Outside the house, pour lemon juice on thresholds, sills, cracks, and holes where ants can enter. Scatter lemon rinds around door entrances. You can use borax, powdered chalk, salt, talcum power, cream of tartar, powdered sulfur, or oil of clove in the same way.

* Apply petroleum jelly around the rims of pets' food bowls to keep ants at bay.
