This essential oil ant killer is what I like to use for both red, black ants and wasps. I have found it to be effective and I like that the ingredients are safe for my family, pets that are frequently in the yard.
When you’re out working in the garden and you get stung by a red ant or wasp, it really ruins the rest of the day. And the trouble is, it’s hard to find an ant killer that won’t harm the beneficial insects you actually want to have in your garden.
Get ready to say goodbye to those pesky ants. These natural ingredients are probably already in your cabinet or in your essential oil collection! If not, you can see where I get mine below.
1 gallon warm water
½ cup honey or maple syrup
3 oz liquid Castile soap
2 oz citrus essential oil (orange or lemon work good )
3 gallon bucket
Mix soap and Citrusessential oils in bucket and pour in water. (Lemonor Orange)
Pour entire contents to saturate ground where you see the ants or where the wasp hive is.
Wait one week until next application.
