Cinnamon to Deter Ants

Take cinnamon, sprinkle ever so lightly where ants like to come in, even outside. They will not cross the cinnamon line!

I tried this in my kitchen recently because the sugar ants were starting to show up on my countertops. I scattered cinnamon behind my sink, which is where they seem to get into the house.


I haven't seen an ant in days! I even left a box of donuts on the counter and they have been left entirely alone. Seems much safer than using ant poison or boric acid in my kitchen.

I use just a little bit of cayenne pepper and haven't seen ants in my cabinets for over a year. They do not like it at all.

Baking soda and icing sugar and a little water to make a paste. Ants eat this and explode.

I wish to know more about any results and about what products you used to fight the small fire ants. Thanks.
