Perhaps you have a house full of children and several pets, yet you also have ants invading your kitchen. If so, you might be leery of using bug sprays, insecticides, and insect traps. Thousands of children and pets are poisoned each year by ingesting insect repellants and chemicals. If you want to rid your house of ants, try using one or several common foodstuffs you probably already have on hand. Follow these guidelines to discover what to safely use to effectively keep ants away:
If you use cucumbers, peppermint oil, or cinnamon as an ant repellent, your house will be ant-free, and will smell wonderful. Keep in mind that concentrated food oils can burn your skin since they are highly concentrated. Use caution when using food oils around children and pets. While it won't hurt them to touch the oil, it will hurt if they rub it into their eyes.
