Ants coming into your house to escape the rain? Try to rid of them with simple and natural remedies without having to use harsh insect sprays chock full of chemicals. Spray white vinegar or apple cider vinegar and place cinnamon sticks at the place of entry. Give it a try! (I’m doing it now after last night’s rain, so I’ll let you know the results). If this doesn’t work, I’m going to try my second layer of defense: garlic and mint. Fingers crossed!

Update from the following morning: I added a few raw garlic cloves and voila, they are gone. However, it could also be that it stopped raining and my kitchen became less desirable.
