Spring – blooming flowers, budding trees, warm weather…..and ants marching across your counter and through your yard. Every year it seems like ants pop up around our garbage cans, kitchens, food, and dishes – they’re annoying and unsanitary! But there’s a better solution than using harsh chemicals in your kitchen where your food resides and your family is. This all-natural solution is WAY safer for everyone.
Did you know that many of the small bugs around your house hate peppermint oil? Ants are so small that it can take them out with direct contact. To them it’s a threat and will deter them from unwanted areas, and eliminate them on contact. Here’s what to do to solve your problem:
Step One: Find the source of the problem – follow the ants trail back to the place they are entering your home. Add a good amount of Peppermint Essential Oil to a cotton ball and swab the trail, leaving the Peppermint Soaked cotton ball at the ants’ entrance.
Step Two: Whip up your DIY Ant Spray to take care of the rest. You can do a re-spray of the ant trail, spray around pet food and the pantry, even on the deck furniture to deter them fro any problem areas and take out any of them left wandering around.
