4 All-Natural Ways to Keep Ants Out of Your House

An unsightly parade of ants near a platter of watermelon slices is enough to ruin any party. (Trust: nobody wants to be known as the “ant lady”.) Here, four all-natural ways to send those critters packing.

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 

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

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

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