Use lemon juice to keep ants away. If you wipe down your countertops with lemon juice or lemon based cleaner you will not have a problem with ants. It keeps them away. If you put lemon juice or lemon based cleaner around your outside doors the ants will not try to come inside. We Had an ant problem and when we started doing this the ants disappeared.

We use lemon fresh polishing spray from the dollar store. I sprayed it everywhere and did'nt wipe it off. Drove them off!! They hated it! Real lemons did'nt work.

Black pepper does not work for me, I tried it, they just walk around it.

Tabasco sauce works like a charm. It kills them by overloading their smell. Ants rely on their sense of smell more on their brain.
