3. White vinegar

White vinegar can be used in its undiluted or diluted form to get rid of ants. For those who don’t mind the smell, use one litre of vinegar and a baster to squirt it directly into each of the nest entrances. 

If the white vinegar smell is too strong, homeowners can always dilute it with water. However, this may also reduce its effectiveness. 

To do this, mix white vinegar with water in a one to one ratio. Pour the mixture into a clean spray bottle and spray floors, worktops, skirting boards, and nest entrances. Then wipe up any dead ants after 30 to 45 minutes and repeat until you stop seeing ants.

The pest control gurus explained: “Undiluted white vinegar does kill ants shortly after they come into contact with it. However, diluted vinegar acts as an effective powerful deterrent due to its strong smell and its ability to remove scent trails.”
