A recent study, conducted by group of researchers at the Stanford University, has found that ants come into our homes and apartments because of weather conditions. Pest control products are extremely dangerous for our health. The National Library of Medicine’s Toxicology Data Network reports that at the time of exposure, cypermethrin — one of two active ingredients in Raid Ant & Roach Spray — can cause shortness of breath, coughing and congestion. It can also cause an asthma attack and wheezing.
Note: you should know that the primary ingredient in most commercial insecticides is a nerve agent that disrupts the insects’ nervous system through direct contact. These toxic chemicals can have the same effects on humans if enough of the agent enters the body.
This means that you should stop using these harmful chemicals in and around your home to get rid of ants – and you should always use peppermint essential oil. This can be sprinkled in the bathroom or in the kitchen, in areas that ants frequently visit. Ants don’t like strong smells.
