Stop those critters in their tiny tracks.


1. Sprinkle cinnamon
The delish spice does more than liven up your morning cup of joe. Sprinkle it generously wherever you think ants might have a way into your house

2. Or cayenne pepper

Little bugs are as opposed to spicy stuff as a picky toddler.

3. Spray a mixture of white vinegar and water
Go 50/50 on the mix and spray generously along the ant's regular route.

4. Spread out some instant grits

The ants will eat them, shrivel up and, well, you get it. Gruesome? Perhaps. Effective? Most definitely.
