Summertime is approaching fast. Time to break out the charcoal and stock up on hotdogs and watermelons for some classic picnics and cookouts. However, fun in the sun isn’t always peaches and cream. Sometimes those peaches bring unwanted guests to our outdoor fiestas: ants.
Our most annoying, tiny little neighbors don’t have to ruin your summer, thanks to these seven useful tips. Most of these little-known tricks use everyday household objects, such as vinegar, water, and cayenne pepper. Some things are as simple as giving your recyclables a good, thorough rinsing.
One particularly clever trick to use in a public park involves some water and pie tins. Looking to safeguard your picnic table, just put a pie tin underneath each table leg. Fill the tins up with water to create a very effective moat, protecting your food kingdom from six-legged invaders.
Finding ants in your dojo, but don’t know where they’re coming from? Simply grab a spray bottle and fill it with vinegar. Hunt down a pesky ant and start spraying near the ant. This will drive the little fiend back to his colony where you can make your final stand.
