Ants are considered to be some of the most annoying and troublesome bugs to deal with.
They’re tiny enough to crawl around in places they don’t belong, which is why learning how to get rid of them is important.
The first thing that comes to mind when you see ants crawling around in your garden is how to make them go away forever.
Bug spray serves as a great temporary fix, but sprays don’t always solve the problem permanently.
Bug sprays also often contain toxic chemicals that can damage your healthy greenery.
A TikToker named London, also known as @GardeningSimplified, has shown a super easy way to solve this common problem.
In the video, he says, “A simple, quick way to get rid of ants naturally – without killing you, your yard, your family, everyone.”
The surprise item he uses as an ant repellent is orange peels.
He explains: “You just take your orange peel and dice it. And then put these bad babies in a food processor.”
Then he says, “Throw them [food processed orange peels] in a saucepan with a few cups of water.”
He explains that there are no fixed measurements to use, meaning you should estimate the perfect amount of water to the best of your ability.
Then let the brew simmer for five to 10 minutes until it starts to bubble.
According to London, you don’t have to let your brew cool before diffusing it in your garden.
He hilariously mentions that he would like the ants to suffer for biting his knuckles.
Oils from oranges instantly strip the wax coating covering ants’ bodies – meaning this mixture causes them to suffocate.
Although most people throw away their orange peels without a second thought, it turns out they can come in handy when tending to your garden.
Ants just can’t survive when it comes to an orange’s natural oils, but your plants will be fine.
