There are many humane ways to keep them away from a property. These methods don't involve use of toxic chemicals that can even kill ants. Since ants are living creatures, they do feel pain. Avoid using toxic chemicals that are harmful to both humans and pests. Before, calling in a professional Niagara pest exterminator, its advised to try humane ant control methods that won't danger the life of these pesky insects. Few tips for humane and safe ant control are : 1. Remove sources of attraction : The foremost step in avoiding ant infestation is keeping your home and surroundings clean. Insects usually accommodate a place where they can get easy food and shelter. Its strictly advised to wash the kitchen countertops, floors, and cabinets properly with vinegar and water solution after every use. Never leave bread crumbs or left over food in an open lid container. Always store raw food items and pet food in an air tight container. Remove the moist sources from a yard, such as debris, dried leaves, bricks etc. Keeping your home clean will not only avoid ants, but other pests too.

The powerful fragrance of tartar will not allow these pests to cross over. One can also use cinnamon stick, cloves, coffee grinds, chili pepper or dried peppermint leaves. These ingredients are proven to repel ants. Squeezing a little of lemon juice can also act as a preventive measure. Growing mint saplings in a yard can prevent ant infestation. 3. Use non-toxic commercial repellents : Since ants are also creations of god, they do feel pain. Its strictly advised to avoid use of toxic products and chemicals. One can use organic ant repellents, since they also offer effective results. These products are harmless to humans and animals, but are capable of driving away ants from a property.
