Tip Of The Week: Peppermint Oil Repels Insects

Use a peppermint oil and water solution to keep wasps and other insects away from your home.

Instead of buying an expensive insecticide made with who knows what chemicals, make your own.

Mix 2 cups of water with about 30 drops of peppermint oil, and spray liberally on wasps, wasp nests, ants, spiders and any other insects you see. To help it stick better, you can also add some shampoo or dish soap to the mix.
