A lot of people are having troubles with ants in their compost bin.
Well, they are easy to get rid of.
Here are a few things you can do:
- Ants don’t like coffee grinds. It makes them crazy! Throw a handful of coffee grinds in the bin and see how they run away.
- You can also use hair gel. This will make the foot or the bottom of the bin sticky and they can climb up.
- Another way is to put the bin’s feet in pots with water. Ants can’t swim. So they can’t climb up from the feet.
- Putting a few leaves of the Indian Lilac (Neem) tree in the bin will help too.
These are the things I know. But if I find out other things to get rid of ants, I will update this post.
