How to Stop Ants Safely

Ants may enter your home for a variety of reasons, but you can block them safely and effectively without using poisons or toxins.

ONE - Liquid dish soap is an easy way to block ants. They will not pass a line of liquid dish soap. If the area that you need to block is small this is a good option. You can simply make a line around the front of your door and the ants will not cross it.

TWO - Ants will not cross deep water. If you have an item that is attracting ants into your home, such as a jar of honey, simply put the jar of honey in a bowl of water.

THREE - Orange peel spray. There are many natural fruit pest deterents on the market. If you have a large area, such as your entire house, you may want to use a commercial spray that has no toxins or pesticides and is based on fruit.

FOUR - Clean any area infested with ants with vinegar. Vinegar is a natural cleaner and will cut off the scents the ants are sending to each other.
