When You Get Ants, Make Lemonade!

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.

What a great tip! Pet- and eco-friendly. We were overrun with tiny black ants year before last, and even the pest control people refused to try to eradicate them, as they had never seen so many million of the little pests. They didn't return last summer, but if I see them starting this year, I am going to try your suggestion. I'll let everyone know the results. Cay from FL

A line of talcom powder placed across the threshhold or where ever they are coming in will stop them. They will not cross it.
