How to get rid of ants immediately: Experts reveal 3 cheap and easy tricks

Well, if you dislike ants then it can be a troubling time – especially when they invade your home.

Sure, you can use regular pesticides and powder that kills them in their droves, but that can be an expensive and time consuming route.

Fortunately, there are many natural, effective and cheap ways to get rid of ants yourself…

How to prevent them from entering your house
The first step in dealing with ants is to prevent them coming into your home.

Ants have a very strong sense of smell and are naturally attracted to sweet things, so don’t leave uncovered food out on the table or cabinets. Ants will pick up on goodies with consummate ease.

Even an empty, open soda bottle can attract them, because of sugary residue. Rinse all bottles, packages and cans before placing them in the trash.
