Basically I had a small amount of x virgin olive oil in a plastic bottle about the size of an aspirin container. I was using it for my dry feet and calves and the bottle got oily so I placed it in the bathroom on the side of the tub. There wasn't much left in the bottle really at all and I noticed some ants had found their way in to the bottle and they were all over it. So I placed the bottle inside of the tub and had planned to let them collect in the tub on the bottle and I would blast them with the massager the next morning. I don't like using insect killer inside so I was just going to flush them down the drain. A few hours later I went to check and they were all dead. Even the ones on the outside of the bottle were dead. The oil is new and not rancid. Im not sure what to think about that one. They were so attracted to it but it killed them. I looked it up on the net and found olive oil is used in home made ant control concoctions but I never saw specifically where it says the oil kills the ants and it is bad for us as humans, I realize we are much larger than ants.

Text The extra virgin part is actually a toxic addition to get rid of the stuff from killing all the land where olive oil is produced. Spread it out all over the world and just poison everyone a little.
