So I’ve provided a link to amazon for each oil — they are all relatively inexpensive and very easy to slip how to get rid of ants in ur house into your luggage even if your boat is in the how to get rid of ants in ur house caribbean.

And yes, you can buy some of these oils as pre-made insect repellents, which works well if your boat is in the US.
