Ant Control Products

It is most important to first classify the category of ants that one is dealing with, and then pick the accurate product to eliminate the infestation. There are different types of ants; we have a fire ant, household ants and the carpenter ants.

White vinegar.

Ants distinguish smells with their antennae and can establish direction and concentration of scents. If a scavenger ant finds food, it will leave marked trails leading back to the colony. The other ants will use this trails to follow  the source of the food.

By pouring white vinegar in all of their point’s entrance and any paths that you might think the ants use, you are distracting their scent trails and thus making it harder for the ants to sneak back to the food source they’ve been invading.

You also consider wiping all the surfaces in the kitchen especially in the counters and cooking tables.

Place some honey in a pot and place it outside the home. Once the ants sense the sweet smell of the honey they will come crawling into the honey pot and thus will be trapped.
