Recently there’s been some discussion on the Jain Vegans group about how to deter ants. Here are the tips that have been recommended so far: –
Spray peppermint oil where the ants seem to enter from. They do not like the smell so this will deter them.
The same goes for sprinkling salt
The same goes for sprinkling plain flour
Also, it is said that ants do not like baking soda on their feet so sprinkling this should have a similar effect.
Do you know of any other tips?
