Have you ever wondered how a hundred ants managed to find their way into the little splash of maple syrup you missed when you were cleaning up your kitchen counter? Don’t worry, you won’t have to put an end to your pancake breakfasts. All you have to do is to get in touch with a professional ant control West Palm Beach specialist to help you get rid of this problem. In the meantime, here are some of the answers you need about getting rid of sugar ants.
The trick is to add one-part vinegar into one-part water before pouring the mixture into your spray bottle. The acetic acid that’s found in the vinegar will not only remove the scent that ant trails leave, but it also serves as a deterrent against these unwelcome houseguests. Spray the mixture along your baseboards or their entry points during times when sugar ants are most active – mornings and late afternoons. Use a paper towel to wipe up the ants that died and dispose of the paper towels properly.
The strong scent of garlic will effectively throw off the ant’s scent trail. To make this happen, you’ll need to tie garlic on strings and hang them from your pantry’s doorknobs, as well as its shelves.
If there’s one thing that sugar ants hate, it’s the odor and acidity of coffee. In case you’re not aware, the scent of coffee burns ants. If you sprinkle used coffee grounds around the kitchen, outside your homes or around your pet bowls, you can expect those pesky sugar ants to stay away from those areas.
