NATURAL ANT REMEDIES: How to get rid of Ants at Home and Garden – Top 12 Ant Killer Ways

Ants in your home and Garden can be a big
nuisance. Its really frustrating to have ants running
around, and they actually cause a lot of damage as well. Here are some of the organic and natural home
remedies to get rid of ants in your home and also in the soil around your plants including
plant containers: The most effective method I found is infact a chemical which is one
hundred percent effective � this I shall discuss and demonstrate at the end of the
video and also you have a quiz question at the end. 12. Chalk Piece: Chalk contains calcium carbonate,
which helps in repelling the ants. You can simply draw a line with a Chalk at
their entry points or you can also sprinkle some chalk dust in these areas for better
effect. You can also safely dust on the soil around
your plants. 11. Pepper: Sprinkle some black pepper powder. This is will help repelling ants to some extent. Even this You can safely dust on the soil
around your plants. 10. Chilly powder is another similar effective
remedy. You can sprinkle it directly on ants and also
on the soil around your plants. 9. Salt: to some extent will help in keeping
the ants away. Just sprinkle some at the corners of your
home or garden. 8. Baking soda and powdered sugar: Ants produce
an acid for their defence mechanism. To harm them we ca neutralize this acid by
mixing equal amounts of baking soda and powdered sugar and keep this in a container like a
lid or plate. 7. White Vinegar: Its believed Ants cannot bear
the smell of white vinegar. Prepare a solution of equal amounts of water
and white vinegar. Add a few drops of some essential oil to it
� neem oil drops would really increase its effectiveness. Mix this solution well. Store this solution and sprinkle it. Repeat this if necessary. 6. Lemons: Squeeze a lemon or place lemon peels
near ant places. You can also wash your floors with water that
has a little lemon juice added to it. Ants don’t like the smell of lemon juice. 5. Orange Peel Paste: Make a paste of orange
peels in warm water and paint this at ant places and holes. Then wipe it after 1 or 2 days and repaint
if required. 4. Cinnamon Powder: Sprinkle cinnamon powder
and see effect � ants are actually repelled by cinnamon. But its not a cost effective method. You can use this only in emergency when you
do not find any alternate way. You can safely sprinkle it on the soil around
your plants. 3. Neem Oil � about 10 ml in 1 liter of water,
you can sprinkle it on the soil around your plant but not directly on plants because this
is double concentration what we are using here. 2. Boiling Water: If its feasible carefully drop
boiling water on their residing places. I know it sounds too harsh, but your home
and garden are more important to you than these creatures. You can also use a dish wash liquid to warm
water and spray on them. 1.Borax Powder and Trap: Most people think
Borax powder is a chemical, But actually its naturally occurring mineral salt and organic. You can sprinkle borax powder directly on
the areas and also make a trap with boric acid to attract most of them. Make a sugar syrup or use honey and add some
boric powder and add to a container with some holes for ants to enter inside and not honey
bees and keep in a corner where ants are expected to visit. You can watch a detailed video on this from
a link at top right corner of this video. And Now the most effective method is the use
of a chemical: There and many costly chemical sprays and stuff for killing ants but What
is Use is Chlorpyrifos Powder � 1.5 percent available as Pyriban powder or check the brand
name at your store. You can also use Permethrin dust with same
efficacy. Its very cheap and effective way. Just sprinkle very little dust near the ants
and they all die within no time. And, I request you all to test some of these
10 to 12 methods I mentioned here and comment below the video so that let everyone know
how effective these remedies are. Now the QUIZ question of the Day:

soda? Please write your answers in the comments
