As soon as the first summer days arrive, we all start one long fight against ants which appear to be all around our homes.
A research conducted at the Stanford University showed that ants come into our homes due to the weather conditions.
It is a fact that their elimination is not easy, and commercial pest control products are loaded with chemicals.
The reports of the National Library of Medicine’s Toxicology Data Network show that at the time of exposure, cypermethrin, which is one of the two active ingredients in Raid Ant & Roach Spray, might lead to congestion, cough, and shortness of breath, as well as wheezing and asthma.
Also, the main ingredient of most commercial insecticides is, in fact, a nerve agent that disrupts the nervous system of the insects when in a direct contact, which tells a lot about its effects on humans as well.
Fortunately, we’re here with a natural remedy that can solve your ant problem!
