Rather than using harmful chemicals in and around your home to get rid of ants, opt to use peppermint essential oil.
This can be sprinkled in the bathroom or in the kitchen, in areas that ants frequently visit. Ants don’t like strong smells. They mess up their scent trails and communication, not to mention it covers their bodies if they literally have to crawl right through it-which they do, with this essential oil spray.
- 30 drops clove essential oil
- 30 drops peppermint essential oil
- 4 oz water
Directions: Mix essential oils and water in a spray bottle. Shake well. Spray anywhere you see ants. Repeat if necessary
