Does anyone know a quick way to get rid of an ant infestation?
My house has been invaded by the little brown ants and a few of the larger blank ants. I have tried setting off the bug bombs, ant traps, liquid and gel killer but it hasn't helped.
I have heard that cornmeal in their path and/or on their nest will get rid of them for good. If it works for you let us know!
I buy Terro. You put the poison out on little squares of cardboard and the ants come and eat it and take it back to their nest to poision all the little buggers. Usually after the first day or two of using the Terro the ants are gone.
I will suggest you Home remedies.
Peel the Cucumber and keep the skins in the area from where ants are coming.Ants will go away very fast.You can keep slices of cucmber also.
Another remedy is, You can put bulbs of cloves also.scattered few bulbs of cloves around the area where there are more ants.Within no time ants will disappear.These are proven remedies.so, do try them.
I have always been a big fan of 20 Mule Team Borax. It is in the laundry aisle at your local market. It is simply boric acid which is natural and biodegradable.
Thank you for the ideas.
I have tried the Borax and Terro and it didn't phase the ants.
I tried the cucumber peels and cornmeal this weekend and the ants just walked around them.
I am still searching for something that works . . .
You can try to put salt around the hole where they are coming in, like a little barricade. Also, I've read that, since ants leave a scent trail for each other, wiping the area down with vinegar will help to erase the ant trail.
