Hello I'm Louise Hodges with greenbugallnatural.com. And we are going to talk about how to kill ants inside your house without harming your animals. In order to kill ants inside your home without harming your pets the most important thing you want to do is make sure you are using something that is natural and safe. On the back of a product it will always list the active ingredients. A natural product might be something like cedar, or citric acid. And those will kill ants on contact. However the key with ants is to make sure that you repel them from coming in in the first place. It's one thing to kill them but to not have them at all is more preferable. So in order to do that you have several options that are natural and are not harmful at all to your pets. You can take a regular spray bottle and mix some cayenne pepper in a suspended solution, that is a great way to repel ants from coming inside your home. Or you can take the juice of a lime or a lemon, or an orange and dilute it with water also with a spray bottle. And you can use that in areas to make sure that the ants don't come in. Then you are using a product to kill and repel ants. It's important that you figure out where they are entering the house so you want to kill them from the inside. And you'd also like to kill them from the outside. Repel from the inside, repel from the outside. That way you are taking care of the entry point and taking care of any that have come inside. So that's how you kill ants in your house without harming your animals. I'm Louise Hodges with greenbugallnatural.com. And thank you for watching.
