Who loves having an army of ants crawling up their kitchen walls? If you are shaking your head no, you are not alone. Ants are one of those pests that getting rid of them can become a nightmare because a colony typically has between 3,000-5,000 ants.
Ants are not a fan of cinnamon. This means that you can sprinkle this lovely product around the point of entry they are using and they will no longer come inside. You will have to do some detective work and figure out where they are coming in from.
“I love spiders,” said no one ever. If you are not a fan of these creepy crawlers then vinegar will become your best friend. White vinegar has an acetic acid that is harmful to spiders.
You can put some white vinegar in a spray bottle and mix it with water to spray in any cracks around your home and also along your baseboards. This will keep spiders outside of your home and keep them from calling your home their home and also keep them from having thousands of baby spiders in the comfort of your house.
3. Powdered Sugar and Boric Acid
Most people scream and even jump at the sight of a cockroach running in front of them. These are other creepy crawlers that are hard to get rid of. Thanks to powdered sugar and boric acid you can make your own roach traps.
Use the powdered sugar mixed with boric acid behind areas like the stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, etc. The powdered sugar will lure the roaches in and the boric acid will kill them. Boric acid is not harmful to humans or pets but to roaches it is poisonous.
If you ever deal with bed bugs then a heat treatment will help get rid of them. Bed bugs are resilient to chemicals which is why spraying them typically does not work. Professional heat treatment for bed bugs, on the other hand, will eliminate them at every stage of their lives.
