How to Get Rid of House and Carpenter Ants Naturally

Learn how to Get Rid of Ants Naturally!

I take pride in my advanced detective skills, and I apply them to almost everything including: figuring out who ate a sticky snack on the couch, busting the person who wore muddy shoes into the house, and most importantly, identifying the entry point of an army of ants invading our house!

Having ants everywhere outdoors doesn’t bother me – it’s when I see them trailing along my kitchen countertops that I spring into action. Therefore, the past two spring/summer seasons we have successfully rid our house of two different types of ants, and decided it was time to show you how to get rid of ants naturally!

How to Get Rid of Ants

Bad news: For every ant you see, there's nine more hidden away.

Here's how to curb the onslaught of pests — for good:

1. Figure out what kind of ants you have.

While there are thousands of species of ants, only about 25 of those commonly make their way into American homes, according to Mike Goldstein, a Certified Pesticide Applicator for Woodstream

2. Seal up cracks and openings.

Yes, ants are tiny, but it's still a good idea to seal off crevices with clear caulk or steel wool, especially if you spy an obvious trail marchin' on in. Patching torn screens and replacing worn door sweeps can also make a big impact.

It’s something we’ve all thought about. The high is great today, but do I have to be worried about tomorrow? How long does weed stay in your system? The total amount of time that weed stays in your system depends on the conditions of the user and how frequently they smoke marijuana. As you continue to consume cannabis, the THC accumulates in the body. The more cannabis you consume, the longer it will take for the THC to clear out of your system.

How Long Does Marijuana Stay in Your System?

Marijuana is rapidly metabolized, but metabolites can linger

By Buddy T 

The effects of smoking marijuana fade quickly, but the drug can be detected in the body for weeks and sometimes longer. The amount of time the active ingredients and breakdown products of weed remain in the system depends on how often or how much marijuana the user has been smoking or ingesting.

How Marijuana Affects Your System

The active ingredient in marijuana is tetrahydrocannabinol, also called delta-9-THC or simply THC.

Can you get pregnant during your period?

Carolyn Kubik

Yes, it's possible to get pregnant during your period – though you'd have to have a very short menstrual cycle, which is the time from the first day of one period to the first day of your next period, or a tendency to have long periods.

Ovulation happens during the middle of your menstrual cycle, most likely between the ninth and 21st days  (if you have a 28-day cycle). After an egg reaches maturity in one of your two ovaries, the ovary releases the egg into the abdomen, where it's quickly sucked into the tulip-shaped opening of the nearest fallopian tube.

How Much Water Should I Drink?

About 60% of your body weight is made of water. You need it for every single body function. It flushes toxins from your organs, carries nutrients to your cells, cushions your joints, and helps you digest the food you eat.

If you don’t get enough water, you can become dehydrated. Severe cases of dehydration can cause dizziness, confusion, and even seizures.

8 Glasses of Water Each Day -- Really?

We’ve all heard that’s best. But the truth is, how much water you need varies, depending on how active you are and what type of climate you live in, among other things.

True Story: I Swear By This Trick to Fall Asleep Fast

BY ALINA GONZALEZ

It was the week before my best friend’s wedding, and my anxiety (nerves, plus excitement) had reached epic levels. I wasn’t sleeping, to say the least. Part of that had to do with the maid-of-honor speech I would be giving. I was terrified and could not shut my brain off to fall asleep at night.

After day three of lying awake until the wee hours of the night, I sheepishly admitted to her that I was too nervous to fall asleep, and she—the bride, who was sleeping like a baby the week before her own wedding—told me I needed to try the “4-7-8” breathing trick.

Want to Fall Asleep Fast? Try These 7 Tips

Follow these tips and you'll fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

If you spend hours tossing and turning at night, you know how frustrating it is to have trouble falling asleep. You've also probably heard the warnings that routinely staying up late isn't great for your health. Research has shown that when your circadian rhythm gets thrown out of whack, you may be at a higher risk of weight gain, diabetes, and depression.

"Inadequate sleep and poor quality sleep will affect every organ system," says Men’s Health sleep advisor William Winter, M.D., author of The Sleep Solution: Why Your Sleep Is Broken and How To Fix It.
