Ants can be a very annoying problem. They're easy to get and hard to get rid of. Blasting the house with chemicals can work, but now you're putting your own health on the line. But there's something else that you can try and it's probably already in your spice rack.
Cinnamon. Yep, regular old cinnamon can get rid of your ant problem. Ants communicate using pheromones, it helps them track, hunt, and navigate. These pheromones are undetectable by humans, but ants can detect them just fine. Now, cinnamon is a pretty powerful spice, imagine what it would be like for an ant with their "super smell" abilities.
Basically, cinnamon makes their communication systems go haywire.
What To Do
Simply sprinkle some powdered cinnamon wherever you see ants. Check behind doors, small cracks, near windows, and so on.
You can also try cinnamon essential oil, just use a cotton swab and dab the oil near doorways and cracks. Watch the video below to see how it's done!
