The warm summer months mean swimming, campfires, frisbee in the park, and countless other fun activities. They also mean the return of every household's most annoying pest: ants.
Fortunately, one Twitter user unlocked a life hack that might make ants less of a problem for everyone!
Could it really be that simple?
Found this out on accident the other day when I drew the alphabet in sidewalk chalk on my front sidewalk for my kid. The ants outlined each letter as to not cross over the chalk. I was amazed lol— 2 Dope Moms (@GetEmGirl) July 4, 2018
Chalk outlining to keep the ants away seems eerily familiar...
In indonesia we have "bagus kapur ajaib" that we can buy in any marketplace. Btw this is not really look great if you have a glass table 😄— baddest badass (@rizkyelle) July 4, 2018
Smart Twitter users are already figuring out ways to use the hack to its fullest potential!
Also nutmeg. Keeps them away from my kitchen.— Old Picture of Dorianna Gray (@blurbette) July 4, 2018
Others, however, don't believe it really works.
that ants not crossing chalk thing is bullshit i just tried it and that ant walked right over it like he didn’t have no care at all— l a u r y n (@b_lauryn) July 4, 2018
Well, if the chalk doesn't work for you, don't worry! There are plenty of other options to experiment with.
