Even though ants don’t belong in our houses, they always find their way in, which, in more often than note, gives as nightmare. If ants have invaded you, I know what you feel because I had gone through the same painful experience – I watched helplessly as they creep in – and finding a solution was the hardest of tasks.
I am happy that eventually, I was free from these irritating insects by doing what I am about to tell you. Even though I didn’t use all these methods, I did my research and found out that they work absolutely well on ants – because they have worked for many friends – they’ll also work for you. Read along and find out helpful ways to get rid of ants forever.
Use various organic ant repellents
Use the following organic repellents when the intruders invade your house, compound or garden.
If you can access talcum powder, then your problem is just minutes away from being over. Sprinkle the powder freely on the paths as well as around the house foundation. Identify also the entry points, which most likely would be doorframes and windows. Scatter talcum powder on all the suspected areas of refuge and entry. The ants will leave with immediate effect.
To kill and keep away ants, powdered sulfur is an effective organic repellent that will get the job done almost immediately. Get the powder and scatter it around the foundation of your house as well as all the paths and suspected entry points. Try it and you won’t regret.
Oil of cloves
Apply the oil wherever the ants are. Don’t forget their holes and paths. To prevent the problem from recurring, always apply the oil around the house and the ants will keep off.
Even though this is a long-term solution and will have to take sometimes before the ants disappear, plant the mint around or near your house. When they start growing, the ants will have no choice but to leave… permanently as long as the plant is still there.
Rosemary works magic on ants. Chop them up and then have them placed where the ants congregate or enter the house. You can as well use them to block the holes from where these intruders are coming from. An effective repellent will end your struggle.
Other effective organic repellents that I would recommend are cream of tartar and borax as an insect repellent. Hear ants’ stories or go and see them when you feel like but don’t allow them to reside in your house. It’s the worst thing that you can wish for. You now know how to do all that as long as the organic repellents are available.
Depending on the item you can easily get, the above items will ensure that there are zero ants in your house, compound and garden… or let’s just say in whatever place you won’t be happy to see them. Contact a professional pest control Melbourne company and get more info about ant control.
