Do You Have an Ant Problem?

I have!

There are natural ways to get rid of ants. It is hard if the problem is really big.

I got rid of mine by wiping down the counters with white vinegar. A plain and inexpensive way to get rid of ants. They don't like vinegar.

I also put out traps of Borax and strawberry soda. They love strawberry soda and the Borax gets traveled back to their nest to kill the Queen ant. I mix it up on a yogurt top with a toothpick.

If the stuff above fails I get ant killer by AMDRO.

I have all kinds of pictures of what ants look like enlarged. The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago had a display of close up ants. They are pretty neat to look at how they work together. It's just not fun having them in your house.

Do they give you the creepy crawlies yet?

  1. I had an ant problem in my mail box of all places. I wiped everything out and sprayed something.. I will have to remember the vinegar.

  2. Don't like ants anywhere in the house or near it as far as that goes.
