It's this time of year again when a little blighter out there, and I had to skip the night so I left the empty glass that had a drunk fruit juice on the top of my dishwasher just to see this morning about 10 ants in It (explosion in configuration 2 has seen those outside !!)
Now this has never been a problem when used to live in an apartment on the first floor but since my relationship has yielded results (CitySlicker here I do not know teehee), I'm hacking invading every room on the ground floor of my house and I want to end this.
The curved dust is removed when you put it around the house and it's a little eloquent neighbor sign as soon as you have the old white line of dust around your home and has nothing to do with anyone working in the media. I have no idea where they come from and it looks like everyone in the country who has a house with a ground floor should have this problem too.
So here is my question. I've seen something that is an electronic pest eliminator, and using Google around it seems to have the desired effect. I even found about $ 25 posted for me. But is there someone else is one of them, or do you know someone who has successfully used one? I do not want this to go into the pile of things I've brought out and used once (on Sodastream, a portable air fridge full of water called a car heater "snapshot" Fayans, deep fat fryer bought a week earlier I decided that Is bad frying and money suit).

If anyone can give me advice on this device, or any other similar use of ultrasound to work, thanks thanks.

In fact, ants are really hard to get rid of. They might disappear for a while but after they might come back. It is better to seek help from an exterminator if you want to get rid of them. https://archerspest[ restricted ]/

jetfulfilled, as a gardener I found that rats can eat the hottest of peppers like it's not even there. They destroyed my chili pepper plantation like it was nothing. So... I guess you got it.
I have tried all sorts of natural repellents - no success. I've also tried those electronic sound devices and electric traps - they just don't work.

The old fashioned spring traps do the job.

Is black pepper effective to shoo away rats? Have anyone tried this?

Liquid or granules work fine as a way to get rid of ants. For large-scale ant problems on how to get rid of ants, use a lawn and garden insect.

Yeah I also believed that electronic pest eliminator wont work especially if the house is really pest infected. Probably it would work if there are like less than 10 pests. But to really eradicate these pests, natural solution and help from pest control service are the best options.

I don't think electronic pest eliminator will help you and you are right every house ground floor have this problem. I suggests you should take best pest control service.

Yeah, I also tried vinegar spray. It's more effective than other poisons.

My mom tried this and yes it is more effective than the white chalk.

I also use these things to shoo them away.

Hey! I don't think electronic pest eliminator will help you control them, I had a similar problem and I used a vinegar spray which was quite effective. Try it.

You can use a spray to kill ants. Mint. Plant, Vinegar, Lemon Juice are natural ant killers. But sticky glue boards are more effective in killing ants and mice.

There are even many more ways to eradicate pest which you can look for by surfing the internet.

Hey Omid,
You mentioned everything very clearly; I haven’t used paste control Sydney in my lifetime. But, I am a victim of ants and other termites; for ants, I use Terro T300 Liquid Ant Baits and it works great.

There are various methods to get rid of ants. But one of the most effective method is to to get rid of ants includes spraying insecticides or spreading ant bait around the colony.

You can spray vinegar to keep away ants.

Dishwashing soap and a bottle with spray... that's less than a $.
