How to Kill Ants With Alcohol

Save

Ants can be a pesky problem to have, particularly if they invade your home and get into your food. Although there are many commercial insecticides that can kill the ants, you can do the same job using a mixture made with rubbing alcohol. This gives you a natural way to kill the ants, without worrying about harmful chemicals entering your home. Making the mixture takes just a few minutes.

Things You'll Need

  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Dish soap
  • Spray bottle
  • Measuring spoons
  • Fill the spray bottle with water.

  • Measure out 1 tsp. of rubbing alcohol and pour it into the spray bottle.

  • Measure out 1 tsp. of dish soap and pour it into the spray bottle. Shake the spray bottle to mix everything thoroughly.

  • Spray the mixture on any area you've found ants. Spray the ants themselves and the anthill to kill the pests on contact.
