The Ants Go Marching One by One...


It may be lovely summer picnic season, but that also means ant season!

To protect you and your family from these unwanted, and sometimes painful, party guests — we’ve provided a list of our lucky seven tips and tricks for preventing ants in your home or place of business.

  1. Make a spray from 1 Part Apple Cider Vinegar and 1 Part Water.

  2. Mix Borax and Honey/Jam into a sticky solution and place near the ant trail.

  3. Combine equal parts baking soda and sugar and place in low bowls near the ants.

  4. Sprinkle cinnamon or coffee grounds around problem areas.

  5. Save any dry peels from oranges, lemons, and grapefruit. Grind them and spread near entry points.

  6. Place cotton balls with a few drops of peppermint oil around your home or business as a deterrent.

  7. Sprinkle cornmeal near ant trails.
