If you're one of the ever-increasing eco-friendly populace, then you're probably looking for ways to control pests inside and outside of your home using methods that don't include pesticides or chemicals. And if you find that you have an ant problem, you'll need to know how to get rid of them without using chemicals. Here are some great natural methods for ridding your home of the pests, using natural products that you probably already have on hand:
If you have a problem with anthills in your yard, kill them with hot water. Place your teakettle on to boil, and when the water is piping hot, pour the boiling water directly into the anthill. The hot water will kill the ants, and close up the anthill, all in one smooth action.
