Natural defense barriers for Ants


  1. Many of the products that form these natural barriers are probably already in your kitchen; they just need to be deployed properly. A barrier doesn't need to be wider than a quarter of an inch (6.35mm) but it must be an unbroken line.

    Be clear that barriers won't work on ants already in the kitchen (indeed, you'll be trapping them inside) but they will prevent any more ants from coming in. Some of the items with which to make barriers include:

    ◦    Powdered charcoal
    ◦    Turmeric
    ◦    Cinnamon
    ◦    Citrus oil
    ◦    Black or cayenne pepper (hotter is best); or try red chili pepper
    ◦    Chalk lines
    ◦    Vaseline (great for doors and windows)
    ◦    Baby powder
    ◦    Powdered cleanser
    ◦    White Vinegar and Water
