Here are a few ways to get rid of ants in your kitchen

Store your food nicely 

Your kitchen is the place where food is available all the time. Take preventative measures for ant removal by storing food items in sealed and reusable containers so they can’t get to the source. Also, store leftover food in your refrigerator instead of leaving it out on your countertop.

Clean your kitchen 

The leftover food in your kitchen might be a buffet for ants. The first step of getting rid of ants is taking away their food source. Apart from this, sanitize your kitchen and ensure you follow it after dealing with your intruders.

Use natural scents 

Ants depend on their sense of smell and find their next meal with that feature. Instead of using harsh poisonous sprays, you can use certain scents such as peppermint oil, cinnamon, and lemon to deter ants.

Add orange and lemon juice

You might not believe it, but using lemon and orange can easily remove them from your kitchen. Just squeeze some drops of orange or lemon into the kitchen and see the difference. Moreover, you can leave the fruits’ peels in the path or squeeze some drops into a mop that will use to mop the kitchen floor. This will create an unpleasant taste on the floor, which ants don’t like.

Be careful of moisture 

One of the main reasons ants enter your home is because they’re searching for food, water, and shelter sources. Apart from this, a mat or a damp dish towel in the kitchen is enough to keep them going. Hence, it would help if you keep those things out of your kitchen.
