How to remove visiting ants

Ants are welcome to be in the garden, this is where they belong, however, when they invite themselves in it can be rather annoying.

Follow this simple, natural method and avoid them nibbling in your pantry.


Ants invite themselves in for 2 reasons, water and food. Once these have been cleaned up then soak a cotton ball/make-up pad in eucalyptus oil and run it across the door or window where the ants are entering.

Ants use chemical trails to find their way about. If you remove their need to come in and remove their chemical road, this will go a long way to solving your uninvited guest problem.
