I have recently noticed an influx of ants around my yard, and it’s only days before they’re gonna try to make their way into my house. I really don’t like to use pesticides at all if I can possibly help it. I have heard so many first-hand stories of pesticide poisoning that I scares me to death. That’s a whole other post, but for now I wanted to share and quick and easy ant-repellent spray that works like a charm. I make it with essential oils, and it won’t harm children or pets in and around my home.
Ants B Gone Essential Oil Spray
2 ounce dark/opaque sprayer
1/3 cup vodka
1/2 cup distilled water
30 drops clove essential oil
30 drops peppermint
30 drops lemon essential oil
Pour all ingredients into the bottle.
Storage: Keep in a dark, cool cabinet when not using. Use within 6 months.
To use: Spray liberally over areas where you see your ants!
