Turns Out, Ground Cinnamon Can Get Rid Of Ants In Your Garden. Here’s How.

Growing a garden doesn’t come easy, especially when you lack a green thumb or when animals and insects decide to eat your hard work over the past few months for breakfast.

Ants can be a big part of destruction when it comes to eating your garden for breakfast, lunch and or dinner; so in order to steer away the tiny critters, your kitchen spice cabinet is key.

There’s a good chance that you already have a certain spice that can deter away ants from your garden this summer.

Hint: This spice usually pairs well with baked goods or yogurt parfaits!
