In this tutorial, we will be teaching you How To Make An Organic Anti Ant Spray in a safe, organic and effective way of eliminating ants from your home.
Take note that we did not try using this on a larger scale, just for plain home use, which we found effective. So, if you want to have an ant-free home, follow the easy steps below and create your own effective anti-ant spray!
The common domesticated ants that we encounter are most of the time destructive. These ant species include banded sugar ants, yellow crazy ants, and European fire ants to name a few.
They come in the way of humans by raiding foods in the cupboard, damaging crops, ruining indoor structures and even biting us. Their bite causes swelling because they have a sting in their mouth.
It is quite a challenge to eliminate a colony of ants, especially during the summer season where they tend to collect their food for future use during the rainy season.
However, it is possible to eliminate them using either chemical, biological or physical methods which can be carried out by either the homeowner or a pest control professional.
We try to avoid using avoid using harmful chemicals in our home, especially if we have children or babies around, so we prefer natural solutions for eliminating ants.
Prepare all the materials needed for this organic ant spray:
• organic apple cider vinegar
• a glass of warm water
• pure baking soda
• powdered black pepper
• a clean spray bottle
• a clean mixing glass
• a piece of popsicle stick or any mixing material
• masking tape (optional)
• black pointed marker (optional)
Step 1: Put at least 2 tablespoons of baking soda in a clean mixing glass. Add 1 tablespoon of powdered black pepper to the mixing glass.
Step 2: Mix the baking soda and black pepper thoroughly using a popsicle stick.
Step 3: Add a glass of warm water to the baking soda and black pepper mixture.
Step 4: Mix the substance until it is homogenized.
Step 5: Dispense the baking soda mixture into a clean, empty spray bottle.
Step 6: Add a glass of an organic apple cider vinegar to the spray bottle.
Step 7: Close the spray bottle tightly.
Step 8: Mix the ant spray thoroughly by shaking the spray bottle.
Step 9: Use a piece of masking tape to create a label and stick it to the spray bottle after, so that everyone in your house knows what’s inside the spray bottle.
Step 10: Now you’re all done and ready to use the spray to get rid of ants.
You can create greater amounts of this anti-ant spray, just make sure that you follow the proper ratio for the mixture.
This can be sprayed directly on the ant’s trails and their home base also. Expect results in minutes and this is completely safe since we used natural organic materials.
This is a must have especially during summer time where the ants tend to collect their food and get ready for the rainy days.
