Ants stay away!
I don’t know what your place is like at the moment but with all this rain we have ants everywhere! We stopped buying surface spray years ago and a few ants here and there don’t bother me. The other day though I came home to a small army of them in my kitchen searching high and low for shelter perhaps? food? I’m not sure. Lucky for me ‘there’s an oil for that’ so I made up a natural spray that will nicely deter the ants from making home in my kitchen. I don’t want to kill them I would just rather they go hang out somewhere else.
The natural solution
Ant Go Away Spray:
10 drops peppermint oil
2 tablespoons of Witch Hazel
Fill rest of bottle up with filtered water
I used a 300ml spray bottle for this
It did take the ants a little while to move on and on day 2 there was still a few hanging around but they didn’t break anything and they have all gone home now so no harm no fowl!
