Quick Tip Of The Day: Repel Ants Naturally

Ants have a really annoying habit of seeking refuge from the sun’s heat in the homes of humans. While some people might find it therapeutic or fun to completely decimate an invading colony of ants with a can of Raid, dealing with the situation that way isn’t very eco-friendly and discarding ant carcasses surely isn’t pleasurable. Instead, stop the ants from coming into your home with the help of a fruit. Ants hate cucumbers, so put slices on wax paper near cracks, crevices, and other areas where the insects might sneak into your home. Just remember to replace the cucumber slices periodically because they’ll rot. [Apartment Therapy]
