We have some serious termite and ant problems, so I decided to give this stuff a shot. I have no idea if it worked, because we live in South Florida where the bugs are the permanent residents, and we're just passing through. However, the stuff smells good, and I feel better about using it than nasty chemicals...
I needed the citrus oil for some things I was trying. It has a good strong scent, and I didn't want to boil peels for hours. Will buy again!
