Killing Ants in the House

Because I have pets, I hate using toxic pesticides anywhere where they might be. I also hate the smell. The hot weather has brought out the ants in my house. I discovered that the vinegar/water mix I use to clean windows kills ants instantly. Other than wiping away the dead ants, I don't even have to mop or clean the area. The vinegar odor evaporates as the vinegar does, usually just a few minutes.

Killing Ants in the House

It's best not to let the ants in in the first place. If you can find out where they are making their way inside, sprinkle cinnamon there. They won't cross it.(07/27/2006)

I hear that Alka Seltzer tablets will kill ants as well. Just put them where you find the ants and they will eat away and somehow it kills them. I hope this helps you out. (09/20/2008)
