How embarrassing it is when you invite guests at home and as you chit chat ants start to come out and crawl around?
Well, summertime is coming and the ants too 🙂
What we do by default is use chemically induced products which are extremely dangerous for our health.
Yup, the sprays we use can cause an asthma attack and wheezing.
Who says this?
The National Library of Medicine’s Toxicology Data Network.
According to their reports, the sprays we use (for example Raid Ant & Roach Spray) contains cypermethrin, the ingredient that at the time of spraying can cause shortness of breath, coughing, and congestion
The ingredients used in this spray attach the ant’s nerve system. The toxins do the same to our brain if big amount of the agent enters the body.
What can you do about it?
This is why we are here today.
The short answer is to use peppermint essential oil.
The ants will hate it because they don’t like strong smells. It messes up their communication and also their bodies.
Here’s how to make this natural ant repellent.
- 4 oz water
- 30 drops peppermint essential oil
- 30 drops clove essential oil
- Mix essential oils and water in a spray bottle.
- Shake well.
- Spray anywhere you see ants.
- Repeat if necessary
