How to get rid of spiders and ants

In late summer, spiders and ants often seek refuge in homes as they look for a place to hibernate. These unwelcome guests can contaminate food and leave dirt and debris in your living spaces.

Spiders tend to hide in dark places and spin webs that can trap other insects, while ants search for food, making kitchens a common place to find them. OBOZREVATEL has discovered an effective method to deal with these pests.

The best way to control pests is to prevent their entry into your home by creating a barrier that deters them. Chalk can help with this.

Ants and spiders dislike the taste of chalk, so when they come into contact with it, they will quickly retreat from your home.

Draw a line of chalk around windows, doors, as well as the legs of your bed or chairs. You can also crush chalk into a powder and sprinkle it at the entrance to each room. This will undoubtedly help keep these annoying insects out of your home.

Apple cider vinegar is another effective solution for dealing with ants. Simply pour the vinegar into a small bowl and place it on the windowsill, or use a spray bottle to apply the vinegar near windows, doors, and on your balcony.

If you dislike the smell of vinegar, you can add a few drops of essential oil to mask it.
