Summer is already here, and ants don’t miss the opportunity to sneak around the house. Researchers at the Stanford University confirm that weather conditions determine whether ants will invade your home or not.
Getting rid of ants is quite challenging, and commercial products contain high concentrations of chemicals.
Have your ever used Raid And & Roach Spray?
If yes, you probably know that it contains cypermethrin. According to reports from the National Library of Medicine’s Technology Data Network, cypermethrin causes congestion, cough, shortness of breath, wheezing and asthma.
Every commercial insecticide contains nerve agent that harms the nervous system of insects when applied directly. Will you ever use this in your home?
We suggest that you opt for chemical-free solutions, and peppermint essential oil sounds like the right thing you should use. Apply it in areas frequently visited by ants, and they will crawl away.
Here is how to make your very own natural ant repellent:
- 30 drops peppermint essential oil
- 30 drops clove essential oil
- 4 oz water
Combine the ingredients into a spray bottle, and use the resulting liquid on affected areas. Repeat when needed.
