DIY Ant Deterrent Spray

Do you have invading ants?
Are they showing up in a thin little line from the back door into your kitchen? 

Instead of using chemicals in your homes, start making your own Ant Deterrent Spray that works like a charm and smells good too! No nasty chemicals or ants!


  •  A spray bottle
  • Distilled water
  • Witch Hazel 
  • Peppermint essential oil


  • Fill your spray bottle two-thirds with distilled water
  • Add some Witch Hazel
  • Next, add some Peppermint essential oil
  • Shake well to combine your mixture

Spray around your home wherever ants are coming in.

They won't come near it...for some reason, most insects (and spiders) detest the smell of peppermint. The witch hazel will kill them if they do try to pass through, making this mixture perfect for keeping the creepy crawlies at bay!
