Leaving cinnamon in common problem areas will keep ants away



Ants are notorious for looking for water, shelter and food wherever they can find it, even if that means they invade your home. If you have any cracks or holes near your windows or anywhere else, try using some weatherproof caulking to keep them out. If you spot a trail of ants in your kitchen or somewhere else, try sprinkling some cinnamon along the wall or wherever they’re coming in. Ants hate cinnamon and will quickly flee if they detect its presence.

Another home remedy you can try is to mix some white vinegar with water and spray it on your kitchen counters if you see ants. There is a very good chance they won’t come anywhere close to the area again.

However, if you have a regular problem with ants you’ll more than likely need the help of a professional. We have access to potent treatments that will rid your home of the problem while keeping you, your children and your pets safe.
