Easy Homemade Lemon Based Ant Repellent

Every house and backyard has ants. We all know that they are not dangerous, but the thing is that we really do not want them inside our house, especially kitchen.

There are a lot of repellents on the market, but they are all made with chemicals, and i do not want to spray my home where my kids play with such repellent, or the backyard where my dog plays.

So we tested a homemade lemon based repellent and we had success.

Here is how to make it:

  • Squeeze out some lemon juice and rub it on door thresholds, windowsills and other areas where ants might be getting in.
  • Another option is to drop some lemon essential oil on cotton balls and leave them in places where you saw the ants.
  • You can also place some lemon peel around the outdoor entrances.

Use this remedy for few days until the ants are gone.
