Why Is Ant Control Important?
It is important to stop breeding of Ants in and near your houses due to the following reasons:
- As ants attack in colonies, they can damage various household things like wires, electrical appliances and the likes.
- If they get into your kitchen or dining room, they can ruin food and make it unhygienic to eat. Those food items cannot be used also. They can also get inside water bottles or baby’s milk bottle. This may affect the health of little children.
- Always cleaning the items and keeping the food inside or covered is not the only solution. Try to control ants because if you overlook them they keep on increasing in number and, this results in a huge mess which cannot be dealt with easily.

How to Control Ant infestation?
Following are some easy ways and home remedies to control ants’ infestation:
- Use borax powder
Make lines of borax powder along the way of ant colony, and try to direct that way to the outside of the house. The ants follow this path and get out of your house. This is because ants are attracted to borax when ingested.
- Pepper powder
You may also use pepper powder at the source of the void from where the ants are getting inside your house. Ants are allergic to pepper powder; it stops them at the entrance only.
- White vinegar
Mix equal parts of white vinegar and water and fill it into a spray bottle. Now, spray this mixture at the entrance, voids and baseboards of your house. It kills ants and prevents their further infestation as well.
You can also use lemon to get rid of the ants. Just soak small cotton balls in lemon based oil and keep them in cabinets, cupboards, at entrances, doors etc. The acidic property of lemons masks the pheromone trail of ants and they lose their way.
