The Best Way to Get Rid Of Flying Ants in Your Home Very Fast

Here are the top ways To Get Rid of Flying Ants:
If you’ve noticed flying ants in your home but don’t want to kill them, you could use mint leaves as a natural repellent. Make a powder from dried mint leaves and put this around the area where the ants are nesting. After they appear to have disappears, make sure to seal the crack or hole where the ants are using to enter your house. This method does require some time however for the ants to be eradicated.
2.Baking soda and sugar .
The combination of these ingredients can help to completely get rid of flying ants by exterminating the source - the nest. While baking soda is safe for humans it is toxic to ants. The sugar attracts the ants to the mixture and they can take it back to the nest. The ants die when they digest the baking soda and sugar.
Your regular dish soap can be a great way to stop flying ants from becoming a pest in your home. The soap sticks to the wings of the ants and stops them from flying. To use this method, mix one part dish soap with three parts water in a spray bottle. Mix this well then spray on flying ants.
4.Lemon juice spray.

To create the spray, squeeze the juice from one to two lemons into a spray bottle then fill it with water. Shake the concoction well then spray it on the flying ants to eliminate them naturally.
