Don't You Wish Someone Would Confess About Their Anti-Dote For Ants?

Try to find someone to help you do a thorough cleaning of your house where ants have set up headquarters.

Better to have two pair of eyes staring down the invasion of the marauders. Take some whole cloves and wedge them (one at a time) into corners of cabinets, drawers or wherever they have invaded.


Make sure you have crawling infants who would rove among the cloves. Same goes for inquisitive pets. Shoo- shoo -- living critters to out of range.

Whole cloves retain their strong, repellant smell longer than loose herbs or ground spices, keeping creepy-crawlies away for months (and possibly longer) if they get the message.
