HOMEMADE ANT SPRAY: SAFE + FRUGAL ALTERNATIVE TO INSECTICIDE


Time for another post in our Frugal Alternatives series!

This time we’re bringing you a HOMEMADE ANT SPRAY : SAFE + FRUGAL ALTERNATIVE TO INSECTICIDE

Although they are harmless, I absolutely cringe when I see an ant in the house – most notedly in my kitchen! Not in the same way I cringe over a spider or other unwanted visiter, but because I know that where there is one ant…there can very shortly be an entire army! EEK !!

Ants are also very difficult to get rid of once they’ve set their sites on a spot in your house – namely again, the kitchen. The kitchen is also the place that I really do not want to spray anything toxic.

Every year between spring & summer an army makes its way into our kitchen. Not from a window or a door – I have no idea where they come from! I settled on the idea that they must be coming FROM THE SINK DRAIN - yes, seriously. Did you know that ants can survive for up to 2 weeks in water?

I would spray when I saw them and then wake up the next morning to more ants around my sink and trailing onto the countertops. So I decided to try a Homemade Ant Spray, that way I could obsessively spray as much as I wanted on the counters and in the sink without any worries :D

To my surprise – it is working so far!

Here’s how to make your own Homemade Ant Spray – a safe and frugal alternative to insecticide.

  • Mix a solution of 1/2 distilled white vinegar and 1/2 water in any spray bottle.
  • Spray the areas you see ants and coat well – especially at the source, if you can find it.
  • If you have reoccurring issues ( like I did!) coat the countertops and sinks, including the drain portion of the sink, very well before you go to bed at night.

    You should wake up to an ant free kitchen and no worries about any contact of harmful insecticides!
