Natural Ant Repellant

You can find many common household items around your kitchen that will repel ants.

1.  Clean areas where you see ants with a mixture of vinegar and lemon juice.  This will remove the scent of their trail to stop them from coming to that area.

2. Place a Bay leaf close to the area that they enter the home.  Switch it every week or two.

3. Sprinkle baby powder or salt across their trail to make a barrier.

4. Sprinkle mint, red chili powder, cinnamon or black pepper in the areas where you see the ants or grow these plants outside of your house to deter ants from entering your home.
