100% Natural, No Smell, No Stain. Always try to make your home and surroundings smell good too, since there are a number of natural, incredible fragrances that pests are repulsed by. White vinegar makes an excellent household cleaner, and you can’t smell it once it dries. Those household ants inside your home is very challenging to deal with because they usually build several nests with numerous queen. You don’t even notice how they invade your home and build their colonies. It is very challenging to get rid of ants because by the time you just see a lone ant and after few minutes they have grown their big colonies. If you pay no attention to that then, more ant will follow to your home. Eventually they more or less gave up. Yes, you have to get off your backside but once its done, you gain back more time than you gave back.
I sprayed a line of the spray all along the back edges of my counter and along the top of the inside of my dishwasher where they had been coming in. This is because anything that you can get over the counter is just a repellent based pesticide and repellents do not work on sugar ants. Let’s say you put that lid full of jam in an area less obtrusive and let the sugar ants crawl all over the stuff, wouldn’t that be better than having them all over your counter? Use a spoon to spread the mixture over the surface of your cardboard pieces. You can use mixture of 50% vinegar and 50% water to wipe out the ant trail. The trail will lead other ants back to the food source and your house have been invaded by ants. It is important to keep your home clean, not just to lead a hygienic life but to keep pests as far away as possible.
But if you want to make sure that the ants maintain a far distance from your house, cleaning is what exactly needs to be done. It’s too far down the garden to water them and with a water meter I’m wary of using the hosepipe too often. 1Follow ants to track down the nest. If the boiling water doesn’t seem to be doing the trick, take a stake and stab it down into the nest. Now that you have their nest figured out and have redirected them to a feeding trough, you can do a couple of things. Now I can ditch the worst and I needed a pair of lightweight trousers, now that I’m out at things like WI in the summer months. A better choice would be to use store bought bait products like “Terro” which will not have a harmful effect, but also is not the most effective.
If you want to be sure to get them wiped out, you can call me or you can now start using a store bought bait. Go on, get up off the couch and start planning and organising! It’s no wonder so many people want to know how to get rid of ants. I know that it sounds crazy, but where are the sugar ants at right now? Don’t take on too much at once as if it doesn’t work you may be disappointed and give it all up and go back to the convenience that the big corporations are counting on. Give the sugar ants some sugar! The ants identify each other with their scents. The worker ants are the scavengers for food. Once ant has identified a food source, he goes back to his colony and come back with their troops to round up. The store bought baits just don’t have the draw that gets the ants to take it back to the nests, but with this method, it might actually work.
