I knew a woman who suffered miserably in the Spring when the ants would come out of the woodwork and roam around her house. She was allergic to all bug sprays and pesticides. It was driving her crazy. She couldn’t spray for fear of ending up in the emergency room of the local hospital.
I’m happy to say in searching the internet, I found a natural alternative to toxic bug sprays. It’s a natural occurring ingredient and can be purchased from your local home improvement store. It’s called diatomaceous earth. It costs less than $10 and is great for killing all kinds of bugs.
