THIS Spice You Already Have In Your Home Will Get Rid Of Your Ant Problem Immediately

Ants are basically everywhere. In fact, the only areas on Earth that lack ants are locations where it’s too cold for them to survive. Oddly enough one such place, Antarctica, sounds like it’s named after them!

Even though they’re just about everywhere, the one place no one ever wants to see any ants is in their house. They’re just gross, some have painful bites, and just the sight of them crawling around can ruin your day. That’s because if you see one little ant it’s very likely that somewhere close by hundreds, maybe even thousands, more are lurking.

If or when your home is invaded by ants, keep calm and grab the cinnamon! It’s an effective all-natural remedy that’s a lot safer for pets and children than any of the toxic, chemical laden ant-rid products are. Plus, your house will end up smelling wonderful!

Here’s how to use cinnamon to repel pesky ants- Simply sprinkle a bit of plain powdered cinnamon wherever you see ants around the house. Look to see where they’re coming from and focus on doors, windows, cracks and crevices, the foundation, near the trash, or wherever else you think they could be getting in. You may also use cinnamon essential oil diluted in a bit of water. Dip a Q tip in the oil and draw a line across doorways or around cracks to form a barrier. Ants hate cinnamon and will not walk on or over it, so be thorough. To see just how well cinnamon works check out the accompanying video. If you were skeptical before the clip, it will make you a believer!

There are several different theories as to why cinnamon works. One is that the strong aroma it emits interferes with the ants sense of smell, which they rely on to get around and communicate by. Ants leave a trail of pheromones to scent mark pathways to food and others follow them, that’s why you often see them following one another in uniform lines. The cinnamon blocks these trails and messes up their sense of smell, sending them packing! Another theory is that ants cannot stand having cinnamon essential oil or powder on their bodies and that breathing it in causes them to choke or suffocate. Regardless of the true cause, it works and that’s all that matters.

All in all it sounds like cinnamon is the way to go. You won’t have to worry about your kids or animals, your house will smell good, and all of the ants will be gone. Try it and stop the little invaders in their tracks!
