Orange Oil Helps Deter Ants

Put a few drops of essential oil of orange on a cotton ball. Wipe on entry points or place the cotton balls in strategic locations. Do not rub the oil on a surface where it might become slippery and cause a fall. The essential oil of orange contains limonene which is toxic to ants and they will avoid the area. It is a nice natural deterrent.
