Ants No More

This Sparked Me!

Mix water and vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray doors and windows. Any area you suspect ants are coming in. This will stop them in their tracks.. literally! Ants leave a scent behind so they know where they came in and out. The vinegar eliminates the scent and spraying once a week eliminates the ants!

    I just do half water half vinegar in the spray bottle... works like charm!

    I love this because it doesn't kill them. Most ants are very helpful, just not in the house!
