Baby powder helps deter ants: MYTH or FACT?
I personally put it to the test...FACT.
I sprinkled talcum scented powder around the surrounding areas my uninvited visitors marched upon and the following day there was no trace of them.
Other possible alternatives to stop ants from attacking:
- Sprinkle pepper OR cinnamon OR mint oil around area ants have crossed.
- Spray white vinegar on counters or baseboards.
- Place a bay leaf or two in cabinets.
As for the other possible alternatives you'll have to be the one to put those to the test.
It's that time of year again when scouts search for food...don't be a victim.
