How to Get Rid of Ants in The Kitchen

Ants can occur in any house. They are not dangerous as long as they don’t attack your food or the garden. But, when summer comes, the number of ants that get inside the house is increasing. They can become a problem both inside and outside the house.

Ants can destroy the garden and can invade the kitchen and pantry.

There are many commercially available insecticides that can get rid of ants. But they are full of toxic chemicals that may harm your pets, your food or your garden.

Fortunately, there are natural alternatives to eliminate ants. They have no negative impact on health or environment.

Garlic water

The combination of sulfur and fresh garlic is very disturbing to the ants. This natural method removes ants and protects your home.

How to prepare:

Put a few garlic cloves in a pot and fill it with water. Let soak for at least 24 hours.
After 24 hours, put this mixture over low heat for 15 minutes.
Pour the liquid into a spray bottle and spray the areas where you spotted ants.

Orange peel

Many people dispose orange peels without knowing that they have amazing properties that may contribute to their health and to house cleaning.

In this case, the substance in orange peels is toxic to ants.

What to do?

Cut the orange peel into small pieces or grate it. Put the pieces in areas where you spotted ants.
They will carry the orange peel pieces in the nest and will die because of the toxic substance.

Traps for ants

Put some honey, syrup, jam or fried food (chicken, potatoes) in a saucer, and sprinkle boric acid over these foods. Place the saucer in the kitchen in an area accessible to ants.
Ants are attracted to this bait, which will prove to be their last meal served in your kitchen.
