Getting rid of ants (Closed)
When ants show up in the kitchen the special cinnamon ingredient always does too. I can get my people to prepare the ingredient in the workshop but they can't do anything else with it and they just continue to stomp the ants. What am I missing?
Answer from: Browniebakery:.
When you finish making the cinnamon ingredient, there would be a yellow thing by the trash bins. Use the adult that made the cinnamon to pick it up. The persons action would say finishing ant spray. Then, when the person is spraying and clouds of fog come out, make sure NO ONE ELSE is stomping ants or else he or she would get disrupted.

So I made the cinnamon ingredient and got the orange thing, but before my person sprayed the ants she got interrupted and now the ingredient is just sitting in the workshop and they're still stomping ants. What do I do?

@enemygrey: How do you make the cinnamon stuff?
Answer from: tlynn20
To make the cinnamon stiff I think you drag an adult to the table in the workshop that's closest to the door with the new items on it... they should know what to do
Answer from: Abc
I just turned the water on in the kitchen for a little bit then the ants went away.

How to get rid of ants-
1) drag a mom or dad onto a brown pot thing on the kitchen counter.
2) they will "prepare the cinnamon ingredient"
3) drag that same adult onto a yellowish orangish thing by the bins by the gate
4) they will "finishing the ant spray"
5) clear all people (kids/adults) out of kitchen. Other wise you will not be able to finish
6) the adult will get rid of the ants
7) you will get the goal ant terminator and 100 coins. HOPE THIS HELPED
Answer from: Lynnie
I simply minimized the game for a couple of minutes and when I brought it back up, the ants were gone. May have been a flukey thing, as I minimized it specifically to come and look for answers on how to get rid of the little buggers. Found these answers here, but when I went back to the game, the ants had disappeared.
Answer from: Sammy
Lynnie, that's because they disappear sometimes, but they won't be gone for good. The only way to stop them from reappearing is to use the cinnamon ingredients and yellow tng by the bin to create the ant spray so you can exterminate them.
Answer from: Fishkafoon
Drag an adult onto the brown pot by the sink - the pot will appear over the coffee maker. Allow the adult to prepare the cinnamon ingredient. They'll move from the kitchen to the workshop in the process. A mixture will appear on the top right workshop table. When the parent walks away, being sure they're still not preparing the ingredients (click on them to check their action), click on the second parent and drag them to the yellow mound at the left edge of the trash bins. They will finish the ant spray. Allow them to finish. They'll putter about in the workshop then will move to the kitchen to spray on their own accord. NOTE: The first time I tried this goal, I dragged the parent to the workshop when they initially picked up the cinnamon. The cinnamon disappeared and I had to start over again. Do NOT click on the parent. Just watch them as they're preparing and finishing. I found it much easier getting rid of the ants once the kids were out of the home. The goal would likely be easier to attain before having kids, too. There's more focus and less clicking/dragging when it's just the parents involved (unless you want the challenge involving the kids, which means clicking and dragging them out of the kitchen before spraying). Hope this helps. Good luck!

I tried to drag my adults onto the cinnamon thing on the kitchen counter countless times but they never start to prepare the ingredients in the workshop. I had second family and there it worked right away. This is frustrating!
Answer from: VirtualPlayer
I got someone to pick up the brown thing from the kitchen counter and go to prepare the cinnamon mixture and the new stuff appears on the table behind them but no matter how many times I put somebody over there they either play in the workshop, work on career, or need to rest their stupid tired legs. Getting irritated. I have read something about trash bins from others. The trash bins are outside and there is never nothing on them. What am I doing wrong?
Answer from: emo101
What brown pot? I don't see it.This is freaking frustrating!
Answer from: TT
You drag you person to the sink and let it turn the water on in the kitchen and you drag it somewhere else leave the water on until the ants go away. its works great! :)
Answer from: TheHelpfulOne
-Put an ADULT on the pot and prepare cinnamon and don't disturb them. They will move the pot to the workshop.
-Once they are COMPLETELY done, go over to the trash bins OUTSIDE.
-You will see a yellow/orange thingy NEXT to the bins.
-Put an ADULT on the yellow/orange thingy and let them do the rest.
-DON'T let any other person go into the kitchen!
Answer from: Kat
I have the app version, but the instructions are pretty much the same. Put a mom or dad or a kid over 14 on the pot in the kitchen. His action will say 'Preparing Cinnomon ingredient. Then, look outside and by the trash bins there is some orange thing. Drag the adult to it, and let them do the rest. IMPORTANT: MAKE SURE THERE IS NO ONE ELSE IN THE KITCHEN OR ELSE THEY MIGHT BE DISRUPTED. Also, make sure no kids are switching the light on and off. That will also disrupt anyone no matter where they are in the house.

Answer from: HaleyBug_101
Do you have ants? To get rid of the ants for GOOD follow the steps below: 1.) You will see ants coming from the trash can. 2.) There will be a brown looking container beside your kitchen sink. 3.) Get one of your little people. (Must be an adult!) 4.) Drag your person on top of this brown container. Their action should be 'Preparing Cinnamon Ingredient'. 5.) Your person will be putting this ingredient in the workroom. 6.) Drag your little person (again must be an adult) to the trash cans and there should be an orange goo-looking substance. 7.) Put your person on this goo. 8.) Their action should then be 'Finishing Ant Spray' or something similar. 9.) Have fun getting rid or your ant problem!
Answer from: gameplayer
On the game. When there are ants. Theres no brown pot to drag an adult to. So what am i supposed yo do.?
Answer from: Cook123
The brown pot is sometimes in the kitchen they will pick that up and take it to the workshop. After that there's the spray for the member of family who did the cinnamon ingredient.
Answer from: Somebody
I just left the game then the ants were gone
Answer from: Angel
I dragged my family member onto the cinamon thingy and she just threw it in the bin? Is this a glitch or what?
Answer from: TheRandomOne
@haelybug: You don't need an adult to get the cinnamon, I let my eight year old son get it and it works.
Answer from: Smileyface
Get a person to make the cinnamon ingredient by getting the pot on the kitchen counter, and then get the orange thing near the recycling bins. Don't interrupt the person after that or they will stop. Don't worry though. If they accidentally get interrupted the ants will leave after a while and come back later, and you can try again. Hope it helped! :)
Answer from: Hi
All I did was drag someone to the trashcan. Somebody took out the trash, then the ants were all gone.
