Hello everyone! I hope that you all had a great weekend! :) We had a great time with our family and we went to Michael’s first t-ball practice so that was fun.
But last week was not so fun around here! We had an ant problem!!!
This was the first time we had ant ants since moving in here over 4 years ago. At first, I just washed the floor and made sure everything was really clean. I sprayed Basic H and Basic G all over and thought I was good enough.
Well, the next day, I found more… in the family room! WHAT?
How did that happen?
I moved the couches and found 3 lollipop sticks hidden behind one.
THOSE STINKERS!!!! I am sure my little kiddos snuck them and tried to hide the evidence!!!
I was a little upset now!!! We had a group of ants around them. That was not a fun day!! :(
First, we moved and vacuumed everything!!
I had them help because they helped make the mess! hehe
Then I washed the carpet with Basic H and G!
I also did more research about killing ants naturally and I found this from another Shaklee Distributor.
Fill a pint spray bottle with 1/3 Basic H and 2/3 water while mixing gently. Follow the trail of ants and spray a thin stream where they are entering. Also, spray any other areas where they may enter such as by doors, windows, etc. Do not put on painted surfaces as it will eventually cause bubbling.
I just filled up my tip bottle and went around the edge of my house.
After reading this, I also decided to add peppermint oil to the mixture.
I have heard this working for others and I have to admit, I wasn’t sure if this would work. BUT IT DID!!!! Not over night, but I would say that after the first day they were mostly gone. By day 4, I didn’t see any! I did wash my floor and vacuum again and again too!
How does Organic H Basic H kill the ants when it is toxin-free?
I was wondering that too and I asked someone and they said that since Basic H makes water wetter, the Basic H sticks to them and it actually suffocates the ants/bugs.
It worked for me! So if you are wanting a natural toxic-free way to get rid of ants, try this! ;)
Have a great day!!!
