Step 1: Supplies
Sponge with texture
Elbow grease (Manual labor)
Bleach may be used instead of vinegar.
Step 3: Remove Sources
First I took the dog food outside and placed the dog food centered in a shallow dish filled with water.
The ants drown when trying to reach the food.
Step 4: Clean Counters And Sink
I cleaned all areas where the scent trail was and basically my whole kitchen to be safe.
I first scrubbed with a damp textured sponge and baking soda.
I rinsed with a clean damp cloth to remove the chalky residue.
I poured vinegar onto a damp cleaning cloth and cleaned the surfaces again.
I poured vinegar and baking soda down the sink to remove any food odors there.
It is important to keep food and crumbs off the table, counters, and floors after an invasion.
Keep dishes washed and rinsed.
Don't leave any water in the sink because they look for water also, especially when it is hot.
