A natural ant killer formula can be made with essential oils. It is not only better for our family and pets but it smells nice and is cost effective.
Most of the oils that get rid of ants are also good for concentration and focus; so take advantage of both and use essential oils!
Preventing ants in the house begins with making sure that there aren’t bits of food around or dishes in the sink. In Florida I know that if I leave out even a tidbit I get an ant infestation!
Now I make a habit of periodically spraying my ant home remedy around the door steps and porch, and under the sink; and I rarely see an ant.
There are many ways you can be creative in using them and check out the homemade insecticides section if you haven’t already for more ideas!
What Essential Oils do I use as a Natural Ant Repellent?
These oils work the best for ant removal and control:
For fun, spread a line of peppermint oil in front of the ants on your patio and see if they will cross it. Nope, they sure don’t like those oils. They will head the other way before crossing the line!
For best results, please make sure you are using therapeutic grade essential oils. Using good quality oils is the key to success when it comes to herbal insect repellents!
How do we make a Homemade Ant Spray?
We can make a natural ant spray by simply placing the oils in water and spraying them on in and around the area where they are living.
