Top 10 Solutions for Ant Control in Toronto Homes

Goodness, ants! These minuscule, productive animals may be entrancing to watch while they’re walking individually in nature, however when they choose to move to your kitchen counter, it’s to a lesser degree a procession and to a greater extent a bad dream. Be at ease! Here is a diverting yet unquestionably genuine interpretation of the best 10 answers for ant control in your home. Fair warning: it includes something other than a harsh tongue-lashing.

The Cinnamon Challenge (But Not the One You’re Thinking Of):

Forget about the viral internet challenges; cinnamon will become your ally in ant control. Sprinkle it around where the ants are visible. See them pack up their picnic baskets and leave as though ants do not like cinnamon!

Vinegar: Not Just for Salads Anymore:

The solution consisting of equal parts water and vinegar not only makes a great salad dressing but sends the ants into confusion as well. Why? They hate the smell! Spray it around entry points, and watch as your ant visitors convert to the party poopers who fear vinegar.

Coffee Grounds: Turning Ants into Coffee Snobs:

Just like some humans, ants are finicky with their coffee. Spreading used coffee grounds around the garden and outside your house is like establishing an ‘anti-ant’ field of force.

Chalk: The Ant Kryptonite:

Mark entry points with chalk lines. For no apparent reason, ants view chalk lines as if they were mountains insurmountable. Maybe they just don’t seem to like up-climbing chalky Everest!

Lemon Juice: Making Ants Pucker Up and Leave:

Just as vinegar, the citrus odor of lemon juice is a great deterrent to ants. Bonus: Your house will be lemony-fresh smelling rather than dousing in eau de ant.

Peppermint: Turning Your Home into a No-Ant Zone:

A few drops of peppermint essential oil in water produce an excellent spray that not only smells fresh and minty, but also serves as one more tool for dealing with insects. Ants hate the smell of peppermint worse than kids do mint toothpaste!

Ant Baits: The Trojan Horse of Pest Control:

Ant baits are very useful. It is like inviting the ants to a fancy dinner only later realizing that whatever they eat turns into their death trap. Sounds Grotesque, but it works wonders!

Diatomaceous Earth: The Ants’ Worst Beach Experience:

This fine powder is the equivalent of walking on sharp pieces of glass for ants to navigate through. Put it around, and they seem like a barrier that never crosses. Imagine it as the small insect version of ‘The Floor is Lava’.

Professional Ants Control Service:

Sometimes it requires experts. By hiring an ant’s control service in Toronto, you are bringing in the heavyweights. They’re ant SWAT team!

Keep it Clean:

Lastly, prevention is key. Cleaning your house and keeping food behind closed cupboards is a good way of saying to the ants that they’re not welcome at your all-you-can-eat buffet.


While such tips are sure to be comical in nature, they measure up as sound methods of keeping your home free from ants. They do not always work well for those individuals who are unable to cope with a constant ant problem. That is where professional pests control Toronto comes in.
