How Thyme Can Banish Ants From Your House For Good
Many annoying pests are sensitive to scents that will have them running for the hills if they get a whiff of one they don't like — and for ants, it’s the smell of thyme.
While thyme has a sweet smell that you think would attract ants, it doesn’t contain any nutritional benefits for them and even has antifungal properties that can harm them.
Instead of spraying every corner with ant-repellent spray, spreading thyme around your yard or in your home could serve as a natural remedy for preventing pesky ants.
Whether you plant a small garden of it in front of your house under a windowsill or in the backyard with the rest of your plants, the herb will help deter ants from your home.
