Natural Solution For Ants

The best way to permanently get rid of ants is to stop them from coming around in the first place. But what if you already have an ant problem? Never fear, I’ve got the solutions you need. The benefits of natural ant killer which contain boric acid have been proven many times and have almost no harmful effects. A common household insecticide that you can easily prepare is boric acid, sugar and water in a 50/50 mixture. You spray the organic ant killer directly on the ants and they feed on it, then carry it back to their nests. This disrupts the entire colony.

Natural Solution For Ants

Locate the source of ant trails.

Next, look for ant trails. Ants are not always inside, so if you do not see any ants in your home or office but still have a problem with them, go outside and look for their trails. The ants’ trails are usually near a food source; use this to your advantage by eliminating the food source from their path.

Make a natural ant repellent.

To make a natural ant repellent, you will need to find out where the ants are coming from and what might be attracting them to your home. If it is not possible to eliminate the source of attraction (such as pet food or spilled sugar), then it may be necessary to build a moat around that area in order to keep the ants away.

Once you have determined that there is no food source nearby and have effectively blocked off all entry points, mix equal parts vinegar and water into a spray bottle and apply this solution wherever you see signs of an infestation. This solution should have a strong scent which is unpleasant enough for the ants to stay away but tolerable enough for humans who come into contact with it. You can also try using tea tree oil or peppermint oil diluted by water in place of vinegar if these scents appeal more strongly than vinegar does.

Spray the area with your repellant.

Spray the area with your repellant. This is a no-brainer, but it’s important to spray the ants and not just their home. Spray around the ant hill entrance to make sure that they can’t get in or out. Spray directly on the ants if you see them during the day, or spray over their trail at night so that they don’t have an easy path back to their home base.

Ants are driven away by certain odors, but you need to reapply the repellant regularly.

You can use an ant repellant to repel ants. The repellants are described as “organic,” which simply means that they are made from plants and herbs. Here are some of the most common ones:

  • Peppermint essential oil
  • Thyme essential oil
  • Lavender essential oil
  • Rosemary essential oil
