Ants are one of the most annoying insects.
Keeping them away from your house can sometimes be a real challenge. You probably use household solutions, but they are not effective. Besides, they can cause many side effects such as nausea, headaches, and skin irritation.
Is there a natural solution to this common problem?
Surprisingly enough, you will only need one ingredient to repel these insects, and that is cinnamon.
Ants get confused by cinnamon. This spice actually affects their odor receptors, hence their scent trail. Ants have an exceptional ability to sense different smells undetectable to humans and the powerful aroma of cinnamon is too much for them.
All you have to do is sprinkle some cinnamon powder at areas where you usually see them. They are usually found at windows, cracks, doors, garbage cans or in the kitchen.
Also, try dipping a Q-tip in some cinnamon essential oil and then draw a line across the doorways and cracks. This is also an effective solution.
