According to the author of the video, when you sprinkle cloves in places where ants often appear, the head ant will notice the unusual smell and see that other ants are acting nervous around the cloves. It will then come out of its burrow, survey the situation, and inform the other ants that they should stay away.

While this method may seem unorthodox, some people who watched the video also shared their own ways of scaring away ants. In particular, some of them mentioned that cinnamon can also play a role as an ant repellent. They recommend sprinkling cinnamon on the ground where ants appear. It is believed that the smell of cinnamon is unpleasant for ants and can make them look for another place to live.
