Peppermint oil--Since the mosquitoes are going to be on overload this season, I need to whip up a batch of this. Keep the mosquitoes away.
remember....Borax ant bait. Borax is the most common ingredient in house ant control products, and get this: it's absolutely 100% natural. The best way (in my opinion) to use Borax is to mix 1 cup of warm water with 1/2 cup of sugar, and 2 tablespoons of Borax. Then soak the Borax mixture up with cotton balls and place those cotton balls near any trails the ants have established in your home. Feeding frenzy... tomorrow they'll be gone. I knew there had to be a way to do this naturally!
The best wasp/yellowjacket repellant for summer picnics: 2 ounces of mint extract. 2 ounces peppermint extract. 10 ounces rubbing alcohol. Pour ingredients into spray bottle and label. Spray down picnic area and play area. The mint is neurotoxic to bees and wasps. Somehow they know to stay away, but if you spray it on them directly it can also kill them.
