Using Lemon Juice to Get Rid of Ants

March 20, 2012

Close up of a slice of lemon, with one drop coming down.Well, don't really make lemonade, but I read in an old fashioned tip book that ants don't like lemons. When I got ants in my pantry, I took an old bottle of lemon juice, dampened my cleaning rag with it and wiped down the shelves and walls. The ants went away and haven't come back. I also cut up lemon peels and sprinkled them around a ant bed beside my patio and they left. I have used the lemons several times and it has always worked for me.

Keep ants out of your kitchen, use some lemon juice on windowsills and doorways.
