The Lasius Flavus, or yellow meadow ant, is most common in Europe, but is also found in Asia, North Africa and eastern North America, according to the BBC. However, it has been known to circulate around human dwelling places. Getting rid of yellow meadow ants is easy and several natural remedies can be found right in your kitchen!

Methods

Clean your kitchen. Ants send out "scouts" to check out an area before the rest of the colony follows to move in. The scout ants leave scent trails that make it easy for other ants to follow. Since most ants are attracted to the scent of food emanating from your kitchen, wipe down countertops and mop the floor with a solution of equal parts water and vinegar.

Place and seal all of your food items in airtight containers, as the scent of food is what draws ants in and around your home. Clean spills quickly and keep crumbs off of the floor.

Block ants from entering your home by creating a noxious barrier to keep them at bay. Ants do not like cinnamon and chili powder. Combine equal parts of each into a large-holed shaker. Sprinkle the mixture over the thresholds of door entrances, along the inside of ground floor windowsills and in any crevices that lead into your home.

  • Ants send out "scouts" to check out an area before the rest of the colony follows to move in.

Search for the anthill or mound where the ants originated. Once you find it, pour two quarts of boiling hot water into it. The mound will collapse and the boiling water will kill the remaining ants inside.
