One of the most prolific pests, ants are seen my some as a nuisance and annoyance, but by others as a beneficial pest to gardens and plants. But if you've seen ants trailing across your kitchen countertop, then you probably want to find an easy—and safe—way to rid your home of the little critters. Here are some ways to keep ants away naturally, without using chemicals, pesticides, or insecticides harmful to your family and pets:
Keep all food in airtight containers, and clean up food after eating. Don't leave dirty dishes in your kitchen sink. Rinse the food particles away. Sanitize kitchen countertops with ammonia or a spray cleaner. Use general good sanitation within your entire home, making it less hospitable for ants to feel welcome.
