Try this DIY non-toxic ant spray that kills the ants on contact.. Actually, the way I discovered the recipe was quite accidental.. White vinegar is the base so it's an acid, and then the essential oils are a fairly large percentage of the formula.
Essential oils: You can use essential oils such as peppermint, citrus oil and tea tree oil to make an ant–repellent spray. Purchase a clean spray bottle and fill it with 1/4 cup of water, 15 drops of tea tree oil, 15 drops of peppermint oil and seven drops of the citrus oil of your choice.
Clove Essential Oil. In addition to disrupting scent trails, clove oil kills ants on contact.. See recipe below for ideas. (Where to find clove oil). also masks their scent trails. It is best used with another repellent, like citrus peels or essential oils.
