Ants are really a problem especially during summer. You can see them on your tables, cabinets, and just anywhere in your home.

The reason is that ants will not be able to pass through these items. But if they are already in your home, your other option to prevent them from spreading is to place garlic cloves, spearmint leaves o cucumber peels on the areas where they are found. The reason of this is that these items are actually known for being ant’s repellant. Once you have control over the ants inside your home, you can now focus on the outdoor infestations.
