Cheap and Natural Ant Repellents
Whether you are planning on homesteading, living off grid, camping or just living your life at home, ants will always find you and your food. You can always head down to the local hardware store or supermarket and purchase expensive and harsh chemicals to spray your home and/or garden. I don’t know about you, but I have no intention of dousing the kitchen, where my children eat, with bug spray or littering it with tiny ugly ant traps they can get at.
Fortunately we found this excellent article on natural and cheap and repellents that you can put to use in any type of situation. Whether you live in an apartment or a cabin you can use these tips to get rid of insects at the source and make sure they stay away.
We at SHTFPreparedness have always been advocates for natural remedies for everyday uses or needs, and this one fits the bill for ants. The best part about using some of these tactics is that they are all natural ingredients. As all of these ant repellents are natural they are safe to use on plants which will help with your gardening efforts as well. Ultimately, you do not have to depend on pesticides which can harm your health and the environment. If SHTF, having to barter for insect repellent can cut into your time and savings.
