How to Make Natural (non-toxic) Ant Killer
Ant Killer Recipe
Ants are one of those pesky insects that seem to be able to find their way into any space. Sometimes it can seem almost impossible to get rid of them. After trying several different "ant killer" recipes and that proved not very effective, I made this one up and tried it and it works GREAT ! It's so easy and cheap also.
Plastic spray bottle (16 ounces)
3 tablespoons dish-washing soap
4 teaspoons of peppermint oil
Fill your spray bottle half full of water, add the soap and peppermint oil. Gently shake and your done !
Ants abhor the smell of peppermint, and the soap kills them. So the peppermint will aid in deterring future ants because of the smell. And, you don't have to worry about using a bug spray which is full of chemicals and horrible to use around children.
