Ants can be a big problem now that summer's here but running to your local department store to buy a can of poison might not be your best option. We have composed a list of methods using household products and procedures to get rid of ants in an environmentally friendly manner.
Locate their ant mound by following the trail of ants. Using hot water mixed with a high concentration of soap, pour the solution on the pile of ants and they will die instantly on contact. If you prefer a spray bottle, you can pour the mixture in a spray bottle and use it throughout your home on the ants. Make sure to clean up the dead ants and the crumbs they were trying to eat.
After locating the ant mound, sprinkle chili powder on the mound as its a natural repellent and will kill them. This method is better for those that don't want to see them die as it may take a few hours.
Buy your children magnifying glasses or give them some old sneakers. :)
