Do you have ants in your house? When the weather gets warm I get ants in my house. There are chemical products out there to keep the ants away, but I want to use a safe non chemical product to keep the ants away in my kitchen, as I don't want chemicals near my food. I found a way to keep the ants out of my house with a homemade safe spray that uses peppermint oil and it smells awesome. This spray will help keep the ants away as they do not like the smell of peppermint and the scent covers up their scent trail. I use this spray as a preventive spray and spray it on base boards, cabinets were I store food and other area that are prone to ants. I will also use this spray after I have seen ants, to cover up their scent trail. This spray only needs 2 ingredients and a spray bottle.
Natural Ant Spray
2 cups water
1 teaspoon peppermint essential oil, I like using Morning Pep peppermint essential oil
Put all ingredients in a spray bottle and shake well. Spray this where you want to keep ants away. The peppermint scent will keep them away. This spray also keeps spiders away too. I woke up to ants the other morning near my coffee maker and sprayed this after I cleaned up the ants. I have not seen ants there since I sprayed.
Do you have an ant problem in the summer or year round?
