Excellent ant repellant!

I found an excellent ant repellent! I had small black ants coming in through a kitchen window and I tried everything to get rid of them. I read online that Lemon Pledge (the dusting spray!) will deter them and they will not come back! I sprayed it all around my window, windowsill, etc. and they are GONE! I now spray all my window trim and sills with lemon pledge as a precautionary measure! It sure smells better than bug sprays!

one thing to remember is not to use something that repels ants and bait at the same time.

if you see a few ants there is a whole nest somewhere, if you want to kill the nest and not just the few workers that you happen to see you will want to avoid using any repellant and only use bait.

The pledge is working because it's destroying the scent trail. Ants use a scent trail to navigate. Baby powder works just as well.

Eliminate food and water sources. Ants will go elsewhere.
Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.
