I like ants. I like insects that work toward tomorrow. But there comes a limit. I have some very small ants that get up on my sink and countertop. I have dogs, so I don’t like using harmful chemicals around my house, and I do my best to get the ants back outside. But I can do just so much before it’s time to mix up water and vinegar in a spray bottle (about 1 part water to 1 part vinegar). This concoction stops the ants in their tracks.

Another mixture that also works for me is dish soap and water in a spray bottle.
