As with any garden pest, the appearance of them inside the house can be a cause for concern. Fortunately, there are several simple ways you can prevent them from crossing the threshold and using your house as a free buffet.
In most cases, ants venturing inside the house are looking for food, and if they find any, you could have hundreds of ants trying to enter your home.
To prevent this, make sure food is cleared away and stored properly.
Also make sure that surfaces are wiped down or swept of any crumbs.
If the problem persists, block off any likely entry points or get creative and apply some peppermint essential oil to the area.
Similar to the plant, peppermint oil has a strong fragrance that interferes with ant pheromones and is strong enough to deter them.
