  • one spray bottle
  • 3/4 full of water
  • 4 tsp. of peppermint oil (go to GNC)
  • 3 Tbsp. liquid dish soap


Shake and spray where you see ants. It smells nice and can be used outside too. Have sprayed at wasps and they have flown away. You might have to use a few times before no more visible ants. Can be sprayed on wall or floor.

For some reason this year the ants love our cats' food and water bowls, so I'll have to give this a try. Thanks for sharing.

It also works fairly well to use mouthwash instead of essential oil.
