Fighting a wave of tiny invaders? You’re totally not alone. Wherever you are in the country, it’s pretty much impossible to keep household pests away forever—no matter how much you clean, spray, or trap. Life finds a way! The difference between stressing and keeping calm when creepy crawlies inevitably show up? Having a safe course of action when you see that line of ants or handful of scuttling bugs when you flip the light switch. That’s where we come in—Aunt Fannie’s pest control products effectively tackle the most common household pests and keep them from taking over your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room—and won’t disrupt your home’s microbiome while they work. Here’s what you’re most likely to find, and the remedy we’ve created to banish the bugs that are bugging you:

In the Pacific Northwest, and the mid-Atlantic, you’re most likely to be antagonized by ants. 

AF Ant Remedy FrontYou’ve probably tried a few DIY remedies to remove the line of tough little workers (from a sprinkle of cinnamon to lemon juice) but still find them on your cutting boards and forming a line to the trash. Enter our Ant Remedy

Made using hard-working ingredients, this ruthlessly effective spray is miles more effective that those sticky papers covered in who-knows-what kind of poison. Spray Ant Remedy on surfaces under sinks, in cabinet corners, and behind appliances.

In the California, Nevada, and the deep south, roaches are a real nuisance. Cockroaches are cold-blooded creatures that cannot regulate their own body temperature, so the warm, cozy, Hygge vibes in your home are the perfect respite for these gross guys on cold nights. Our Roach Remedy is made with food-based ingredients that get rid of roaches without chem-bombing your home in conventional pesticides.

Our take-everywhere Mosquito Wipes are DEET free and safe for kids over 6 months. These easy-to-use wipes are a golden ticket to skipping the itchiness and staying outside all summer long.

No matter where you live, fruit flies are likely a pesky problem year round, especially if you’re eating healthy (think fresh fruit and veggies). One mama fruit fly can lay up to 500 eggs at a time. No thank you! Our food-safe FlyPunch! Fruit Fly DiveJars eliminate fruit fly problems in a flash. Simply pop open a jar, set it on the counter near your fruit bowl,  and see the problem disappear!
