Natural Ant Sprays

Using natural ant sprays is a safe way to get rid of ants. They contain essential oils, vinegar, and water, which can be sprayed around the kitchen and other areas where ants may be present. Using these ingredients will keep your home free of ants and pests.

Essential oils can be sprayed directly on ants or placed on cotton balls and used in cabinets where ants are common. Cinnamon leaf essential oil is effective at repelling ants. You can purchase this oil at health food stores or online.

Borax and sugar are also effective ant killers. The ant ingests the borax syrup and takes it back to the queen. This will kill the entire colony.

Coffee grounds can also be used as a repellent for ants. They can be sprinkled on window sills, around flower stems, and in cabinets. They will lose their potency if they dry out.

Peppermint is another effective ant repellent. You can plant peppermint around the perimeter of your home, or place a cotton ball with the oil on it in the cabinets where ants are commonly seen.

You can also spread a solution of water and White Vinegar around ant infestation areas. This will cover up ant scent trails. If you have a severe ant infestation, spray the solution around your windows and window sills.

Boric acid is also an effective ant killer. It erodes ants’ outer shells and stomachs. However, it should be kept away from children and pets.
