We offer already made and easy to use Bugz Off products,both for people and pets. However, for those of you who want to make your own, this is a great option. The oils in this blend have many beneficial properties besides just being insect repellents, so take a look at our essential oil data base for additional information. We like to use approximately 2.5 ml (1/2 tsp) per 8 oz of liquid for a safe and effective blend. You can put this in a spray bottle and use it for a variety of purposes. I like to put it in our trigger bottle and spray around the baseboards of the house to deter any and all unwanted guests. Peppermint is known to repel mice - I haven't seen any in our house, so I'm guessing it works. We have had some ants this year due to the very wet spring - IF I continue to spray the baseboards, the door threshholds and around the sink - they stay away. If I forget - they do come back. For effective deliverance from these pests long term I would recommend Diatomaceous Earth. For the other insects that are more than a nuisance due to their ability to carry disease, such as ticks and mosquitoes, our Bugz Off! blend has proven itself to be effective from Africa to Minnesota to Louisiana. It is DEET free, it smells good and feels good on your skin.
