How to get rid of ants in the house: a product that is in every kitchen will save

Ants like sweets

Ants can become uninvited guests in your home. Most often they settle in the kitchen in search of sweets. Although they are not harmful, they create a lot of discomfort.

Housewives try to avoid chemical means for removing insects in closed rooms. Therefore, OBOZREVATEL gathered effective natural remedies that will help to combat them.


This product not only removes stains and stubborn dirt, but also effectively fights mosquitoes. It affects their behavior because pests hate the strong smell of the solution.

Ants communicate using pheromones. They follow the scent that other ants have left behind to find food. Vinegar blocks the smell, preventing the pests from getting to the right place. The solution doesn't kill the ants, it only scares them away.

When you have found where the insects have settled, prepare a solution to get rid of them. Mix vinegar and water in a ratio of one to one, add a few drops of essential oil and shake well. With this mixture, spray the area where the insects are and all the doors, windows, baseboards, walkways where they move. Do not rinse it off and then wipe all areas with a cloth.

Repeat this procedure several times a week to get rid of uninvited guests for sure. Ants will not appear in your home as long as you can smell the vinegar. But if there are too many of them and the mixture does not help, it is better to ask for professional help.

To keep insects out of your home, apply sealants to cover cracks, holes, and crevices in walls and windows. Check basements and vents for ants. Also keep the house clean, don't leave dirty dishes, and throw away trash on time so insects don't find food scraps.

Don't forget to trim trees and bushes regularly because they serve as nests for pests.

In addition to vinegar, ants hate the smell of lavender, cinnamon, peppermint, and cloves.
