ANTS! A natural way to handle these pesky pests

Real Estate Agent with Wilson Than Real Estate

A friend recently asked me to pick up some ant killer to tackle a line of ants marching into his apartment.  Though there are a number of natural sprays available, I instead suggested spreading paprika on the spot where the little pests were finding their way in.

Along with paprika, chili powder, cayenne pepper, and cinnamon are spices which ants won't cross if spread in their way.  Be careful, though, because colorful spices can stain surfaces when wet.

First of all, welcome to the rain and this is a great way that I never knew. I've always used WD-40 with the same results, but that isn't as good for the environment as your little trick.

I will have to give this a shot at a couple listings that I know have a problem in their kitchens.
