Empty Trash: Overflowing garbage bins are a surefire way to attract ants.
Caulking: Continuously seal all windows, doors and cracks that ants could crawl through.
Vinegar-based Cleaning Solution: Mix 1 part water with 1 part white distilled vinegar for a DIY cleaning product. Ants hate the smell of vinegar and will be sure to leave your kitchen alone.

Coffee Grounds: Sprinkle used coffee grounds in your garden and the perimeter of your home.
Move Leaves, Lumber, Rocks & Mulch: Ants will quickly build nests in these piles; make sure to keep them away from your entryways for easy access.
Keep Shrubs Neat: Trim trees and shrubs so that branches do not touch your home letting ants easily crawl inside.
Mint: Place a few drops of peppermint essential oil on a cloth and wipe down surfaces in your kitchen and bathroom.
