Another age-old trick to get rid of ants is cucumber peel. Ants have a natural aversion to cucumber, as they cannot stand its taste. Bitter cucumbers work best, but you can use normal cucumbers, too.

  1. Peel a cucumber.
  2. Place pieces of the peel in all areas where you have seen ant activity.
  3. Replace them with fresh peels daily.
  4. Repeat as needed until the ants are gone.

8. Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne pepper also works as an effective ant repellent. The strong nature of cayenne pepper destroys the chemical signals that ants rely on to navigate toward food, their nest and other places. Without a proper signal, ants will not able to survive and will thus look for new places to go.

  • Sprinkle cayenne pepper powder in areas where you notice ants.
  • You can also mix equal amounts of cayenne pepper and turmeric powder and sprinkle it across the access points to make an unpleasant barrier for ants.

  1. Here’s the only way to get rid of ants permanently, soak bread crumbs ( the kind that you can buy in a can,) in corn syrup and leave and sprinkle around base boards and cabinets. This is sure to draw the ants into your house by the thousands. Then you can kill them with your slippers.

  2. I am looking for the ratios for a solution of boric acid, sugar and water!!! It is toxic so you have to be careful around children and pets!!! It might take two times, but my kitchen has been free of them for months!!! They came back to the bathroom and now it’s been free of them for several weeks now!!!

  3. I use used coffee grounds. They eat it and then explode later. They are gone. I got rid of two major ant hills in my yard. When they were all dead the ground which was a hill was now a hole in our yard.

  4. The best way to get rid of ants & spiders are to buy electronic pest controls that you plug into wall . They give out an electronic sound in the walls that bugs don’t like . You can buy them at Wal-Mart’s . I used to buy sprays in a can , about three cans a week until I bought the electronic pest controls. The have no smell but they do have a little sound that you can hardly hear.

  5. Great site – ants have been driving me crazy for months – tried lots of suggested tricks. The one that has worked this far is using a small travel spray bottled. Half white vinegar, half water – add a few drops of peppermint oil. Shake. A few short spurts aimed at the ants stops them
    In their tracks. Wipe up with paper towel. Intend to use the silver spoon theory to find out where they are coming from & seal those areas. This should put an end to it – & it’s all natural & safe.

  6. Well, I’ve just started sprinkling baking powder at their point of entry and along their trails and it seems to have worked! No more ants!😜
    Yesterday the kitchen floor was swarming with the buggars and the counter tops and cupboard doors were all in motion! A horrible sight! Apparently this happens often in spring! First time for me!
    Spent the day vacuuming them away and hoping they wouldn’t suddenly come marching back out of the vacuum cleaner! But every time I returned to the kitchen there were hundreds more to take their place! On Sunday in Austria all the shops are closed so no hope of buying another ant trap!
    So Last night I tried baking powder – an old kitchen help that housewives have been using for decades! Give it a try!

  7. Have heard most everything as a sure-fire remedy to riding a kitchen of ants and have tried most everything. I can’t find their source and they seem worse at some times than others. They don’t seem to be sweet eating ants so I think I am going to try Boric acid and bacon grease…I’ll let you know how this serves…can’t hurt, huh?
