How to Repel Ants!

Got ants in the house?
Here are some herbal ideas to keep them away!

Ants are sensitive to bold odors and cannot stand the smell of herbs such as:
  • Cloves
  • Crushed mint leaves
  • Ground Cinnimon
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Fresh Garlic
  • and Fresh Bay Leaves

If you really want to kill them off the "organic" way, then mix up a wicked batch of 1 part honey to 1 part boric acid. However, this mix is NOT good for pets or children. A safer way to kill these creepy crawlers is to mix up honey with baking yeast. The yeast will expand under the its extoskeleton and the ants will litterally pop!
