It’s summertime and while usually, that makes one think of many different fun things to do something else may also come to mind. Ants, they seem to be one of the hardest pests to get rid of in the summer.
During the summer ants come into our homes because of the severity of the weather and as most of you may already be aware those “pest control products” can be very harmful to us as humans as well as out furry friends. Raid’s ant and roach sprays have been known to cause asthma attacks!
Most of these sprays and repellents contain active ingredients that cause shortness of breath. These toxic chemicals can have the same effect they don on insects if we were to happen to have enough of the product enter our bodies. Why would you put your family at risk for something like that?
Here’s how to make a all natural ant repellent that will keep your home safe!
- 60 drops clove essential oil
- 60 drops peppermint essential oil
- 1 Cup water
- Mix the oils together in a spray bottle, water first of course.
- Shake this well.
- Spray anywhere you see or have seen ants and repeat when necessary, you’ll be ant free in no time.
