How To Use Vinegar To Get Rid Of Ants Around The House
Ants tend to come into your home when the weather is warm. Luckily, all you need to fend them off is two ingredients you likely already have in your kitchen: water and vinegar.
All you have to do is mix equal parts of water and vinegar in a spray bottle. Then, mist down your countertops and any other areas where you’ve seen the little insects.
Do this a few times a day until they’re completely gone. Ants leave behind a chemical trail that causes other ants to follow the scent, but vinegar helps eliminate that scent.
This mixture is great if you want to avoid harsh chemicals, but the smell can be strong. You can use things like pepper, peppermint, tea tree oil, and coffee instead of vinegar.
