Over the weekend, we were sitting outside with a cup of tea and enjoying the good weather. Then we noticed a black stream of ants traveling towards our house. There is only one thing that makes our spine tingle more that heights- and that's ants.
Thankfully, we've found a way of keeping them outside safely that is also easy. Use a few drops of peppermint oil on windowsills, around door frames or on bench tops. The oil is an amazing natural deterrent of ants and smells minty fresh too. If you have something that ants gravitate to every time they make their way into your house, like the honey pot, rub a drop of peppermint around the rim to keep your honey ant free.
Do you have any other tips to keep ants outside?
