"....been using it (Ant Away) for 3-4 years. I have several cats and will not use commercial ant repellent with suspicious chemicals that could harm them."
Essential Oils At Work
Ant Away repels household ants with a blend of non-toxic, spicy-scented essential oils, including cinnamon, cassia, and clove. It's safe to use near children, pets, and food preparation areas. The cinnamon-roll aroma makes Ant Way a pleasure to use.
Grayson here recommends Ant Away.
How to Use
Simply mist where you see the ants travel--on countertops, windowsills, floors, and doorways. Spray Ant Away as often as you like. It may take 4-5 days for ants to give up and go elsewhere. Our only note of caution is to test our product for staining on absorbent surfaces.
The most common culprit—Tapinoma sessile, a.k.a. the odorous house ant, sugar ant, stink ant, coconut ant.
Why does it work?
Ants use scent to communicate, laying trails of pheromones to direct colony members to the food they've found. Ant Away masks their communication trails, so they can't exchange information. It's like us trying to have a conversation at a Metallica concert.
Ant Away meets minimum risk pesticide requirements exempted from FIFRA regulations (Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act) under the United States Environmental Protection Agency. We're not happy Ant Away must be classified as a pesticide. "Cide" implies killing, and we're only sending them on their way.
You can also purchase just the essential oils in Concentrated form in 1/2-ounce ($19.99) and 1-ounce ($24.99) sizes.
Ant Away Concentrate
Ant Away Concentrate is simply the essential oil blend for you to mix with water. Use the dropper (included) to add 8 drops to each ounce of water, distilled preferred. The half-ounce bottle will make 32 ounces of our standard dilution, and the 1-ounce bottle makes 64 ounces. Reuse your empty Ant Away bottles or another spray bottle. Shelf life should be three years or more.

"Recently, we had our home inspected for termites. The inspector said, 'You don't have termites, but you do have ants. By the way, ants eat termite larvae.'
"Because we use Ant Away, we don't have ants in our kitchen anymore, and we're not worried about ants living around our house.
"We're happy that we can repel ants without killing them, poisoning ourselves and the environment."
Elaine Harner, Kirkwood, MO
