Here's How To Eliminate Ants From Your Home Naturally

In the summer months ants can be a real pest around the home and garden.

 Here are some natural remedies using household ingredients to keep them at bay. Ants come into our homes in their search for food. Apart from the obvious advice of covering food, clearing up spillages and having garbage bins with lids here are some natural ways of beating their advance without using any harsh chemicals.
 1. Baking Soda and Powdered Sugar
Mix together an equal amount of powdered sugar (also called icing sugar) and baking soda (formally called sodium bicarbonate). Place small amounts against the walls or in other areas where you would not normally walk but where you would normally see the ants. The ants will be attracted to the sugar and will eat some of it and collect more to take home to feed others, so all of them will get their share. Powdered sugar is essential, larger grained sugar will not work. This is because the sugar and baking soda powders are similar in size and, once mixed together, the ants cannot separate the two items, so, as they eat the sugar, they will also ingest the baking soda, which they would otherwise avoid. Once the ants eat the baking soda it will react with the formic acid in their stomachs and cause gas. The bodies of ants are unlike humans and they cannot eliminate gas so it will build up inside and eliminate them.
 2. Vinegar
 Classic vinegar is effective in getting rid of ants. Simply spray their entry paths with vinegar and they will be repelled by the strong odor. Include corners, counter tops, sinks and window ledges. Allow the vinegar to dry. Apple cider vinegar can be mixed in equal measures with water and spray as before. This does not kill them but it will stop them returning. Adding a few capfuls of vinegar to your floor cleaner on tiled floors also helps in keeping them at bay. A more fragrant option is to mix vinegar, dish detergent and a few drops of peppermint oil. Usually spraying this once around the affected zones should leave these areas ant free for a season.  
3. Salt Or Pepper
Table salt is the one of the best and the cheapest way to get rid of ants. Use ordinary table salt not health boosting Himalayan salt. Simply boil water and add a fairly large amount salt to it, stirring until it is dissolved. Pour into a spray bottle and spray where you usually see the ants. This also works with cayenne and ground black pepper.  
4. Soap
 Regular dishwashing detergents are very harmful to ants. The soap components break down in waxy layers of the pests’ exoskeleton, causing dehydration. Mix soap with water and spray it in the entry points.  
5. Lemons
 Lemon juice is the enemy of ants as the acid interferes with their internal tracking capabilities. Either pure lemon juice can be sprayed around the entry points, or mix some fresh lemon juice with water and spray around the affected zones in your kitchen.

There are several household products that repel ants as opposed to killing them. By using these at entry points you will create a repelling barrier that they will not cross. These include :
  • cinnamon (both ground and in oil form) 
  • chili powder 
  • cayenne pepper 
  • chalk 
  • cornmeal 
  • baby powder 
  • black pepper 
  • ground coffee food grade diatomaceous earth
  •  lavender and mint sachets in closets, drawers, pantry, etc. repel ants 
By trying one of these, or even a combination your home should be ant free. If you think others can benefit from this information please help others see it by sharing with one of our social network sharing buttons below.

Weight Loss: The benefits of FRUIT JUICES AND SMOOTHIES!


A FUN and EASY way to get more vitamins & minerals into your diet is by
drinking freshly made fruit juices, vegetable juices, and by blending thick
and frothy smoothies and shakes from frozen fruit.
A friend of mine describes drinking freshly made fruit juices like this:
"If you have never taken a mouthful of cantaloupe juice or strawberry
juice mixed with apple, you simply have not lived. Blueberry juice is a
taste of liquid heaven."
Freshly made juices are a tremendous source of bio-available vitamins and
minerals which are the partners of enzymes and co-enzymes. Vitamins
activate enzymes and without vitamins, enzymes could not carry out their
work, and we could not live.
Enzymes act as catalysts in hundreds of thousands of chemical reactions
that take place throughout your body, and are essential for digesting,
absorbing and converting food into body tissue. Enzymes produce energy
at the cellular level and are critical for most of the metabolic activities taking
place in your body every second of every day.
Another benefit of drinking fresh juices and smoothies is that your body can
absorb MORE of the vitamins and minerals than if you were to eat the fruits
and vegetables whole! Many of the nutrients are TRAPPED in the fiber and
by blending fruits and vegetables, you break down the fiber and release the
vital nutrients.
When you eat a raw carrot, you are only able to assimilate a small
percentage of the available beta carotene. When a carrot is juiced,
removing the fiber, a LARGE percentage of the beta carotene can be
assimilated by your body.

Of course, you still need to eat whole produce because fiber is also an
important part of your daily diet.
Meeting you or your children's need for energy and nutrients is essential for
good health. Children who do not meet their needs for energy may stop
growing and gaining weight. In severe situations, they can develop a
condition which is life threatening called protein energy malnutrition.
Vitamins and minerals are only required in very small amounts, but a diet
insufficient in these can cause SEVERE deficiency diseases.
You may be showing signs of malnutrition if you ...
• feel tired and weak.
• feel like you never have the energy to clean your home,
make meals or even do the dishes.
• have difficulty losing or gaining weight.
• can't easily get to sleep.
• feel stressed and/or nervous.
• feel drowsy during the day.
• sometimes can't concentrate, you're mind feels numb, or you get
confused easily.
• have problems with your digestion.
• have constipation and/or hard dry stools.
• have mood swings, or get easily upset.
• don't have patience for anything.
• sometimes feel depressed.
• have overly dry or oily skin.
• sometimes have nausea and/or abdominal pain.
• have annoying eye twitches.
• bruise easily.
• have muscle cramps and/or low back pain.
• sometimes get cracks and sores in the corners of your mouth.
• notice that your nails have become thin and/or brittle.
• are losing your hair.
• have water retention.
• have uncontrollable temper outbursts.
• don't eat a well-balanced nutritious diet EVERY DAY

Natural vitamins are found only in living things, that is, plants and animals.
Your body, with a few exceptions, can't manufacture vitamins. They must
be supplied in your food or in dietary supplements but supplements can't
replace food, especially fruits and vegetables which provide thousands of
substances, some of which have well-known functions, and some whose
roles in the human body are not yet understood or recognized.
Vitamins and minerals … ...
◊ reduce your risk of getting a stroke or heart attack!
◊ strengthen your nails!
◊ improve your hair condition, strength and growth by providing certain
essential nutrients to the hair follicle!
◊ beautify your skin by keeping it smooth, soft and disease-free!
◊ provide essential compounds that are necessary for growth, health,
normal metabolism and physical well-being! Without them, you would
◊ promote normal growth and development!
◊ maintain bone density and strength!
◊ regulate blood clotting!
◊ help in the function of nerves and muscles, including regulating a
normal heart beat!
When it comes to choosing a healthy diet for their children, many parents
don't realize the important role that beverages play. For example, fruit
flavored drinks and soft drinks are not a substitute for real fruit. Many of
these drinks only contain 10% real fruit juice. The very best drinks are
made from whole fruit and you can make great fruity healthy drinks at
