Sounds like a great ant mix..
To spray mint oil, you'll need to premix peppermint
extract w/rubbing alcohol 50:50, and put an oz.
in each pint or so of water. It will dissipate
fairly quickly, but if you spritz
the corners each day.....the leaves will last longer,
a few days. Anything that keeps flies away will
make spiders move out too. Keep leaves and twigs
well clear of the jalousies, and don't let dust
build on the screens.
a few squirts a day, will clean a little
portion of the jalousies each time, and drive spiders off
at the same time.
