Ant Trouble? Do Home Remedies Work?

Ants invade even the cleanest kitchens and bathrooms. One of the nastiest shocks is turn on the lights and see ants everywhere!  Once these small pests find their way into your home, it is difficult for homeowners to get rid of them. Homeowners have been known to try just about anything to get rid of ants.

Home Remedies to Get Rid of Ants

Here are a few other home remedies that may work for a short while…. but the ants don’t give up! Meantime, your home has got this stuff all over the place!

  • mint leaves
  • vinegar spray
  • bay leaves
  • baby powder
  • lemon & water
  • cayenne pepper

Duct Tape Ant Trap

Every great  do-it-yourself job has got to involve duct tape!  Right?!  To get rid of ants, you could create ant traps with duct tape. These traps would work for awhile  until enough ants got stuck. Then, the ants began to walk over each other to get to where they were going anyway!  Whew! I’m exhausted just thinking about all the trap making involved!
